Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Like John the Baptist, we are heralds in all four senses of the word. We are proclaimers of God’s battle against the forces of evil in this world. We are witnesses to the glory of God and are obligated to spread that glory far and wide. We are keepers of the family of God. We are precursors of a coming kingdom where all people will live in peace and justice with one another.
