THE BIRTHDAY OF SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST – SOLEMNITY: 24 JUNE

24 Jun

God called great prophets to foretell the coming of His Son;

The greatest, called before His birth, was John, the chosen one.

John searched in solitude for Christ and knew Him when He came.

He showed the world the Lamb of God and hailed HIm in our name.

That lonely voice cried out truth, derided and denied.

As witness to the law of God His mighty martyr died.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You sent Saint John the Baptist to the people of Israel to make them ready for Christ the Lord. Give us the grace of joy in the Spirit and guide the hearts of all the faithful in the way of salvation and peace. We make our prayer in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
