Father Antonio María Domenech Guillén, a priest of the Diocese of Cuenca, harshly criticized Spanish Caritas for writing “nonsense” about Christ on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord.
Spanish Caritas tweeted Jan. 9: “Jesus was baptized as one more seeker of truth and justice in his time, without calling attention to himself, away from the Temple. Jesus is the Church that goes out, he receives the Spirit of God who recognizes him as a beloved Son and he understands that this Love is to be shared. We are invited to do the same.”
Fr. Domenech responded on Twitter, “Don't talk nonsense. First of all, the first part has nothing to do with the second. That Jesus is the Church that goes out is not because he is baptized as one more seeker of the truth. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life; and the only way to go to the Father.”
"He didn’t have to look for any truth because He was the truth," the priest pointed out.
