Happy Birthday, John the Baptist

Today we celebrate the Nativity of John the Baptist. John was the last of the prophets. He represents the transition from the Old Testament to the New. John paved the way for Jesus so we could be redeemed.

My Lord and my God, thanks for the gift of John the Baptist. He prepared the way for your son. May John’s example inspire us to continue his work as we prepare the coming of your kingdom.
