Today is the feast day of St. John the Baptist, a beloved saint in the Catholic Church who was the cousin and forerunner of Jesus Christ. A lot of us in this community are very familiar with the story of his parents Sts. Elizabeth and Zachariah, but St. John the Baptist has lessons for us as well. He shows us how our lives are meant to be signs of Christ in the desert, preparing the path for Him.

St. John the Baptist, pray for us!
