Nativity of St. John the Baptist

Daily Reflection

Nativity of St. John the Baptist

Practice, practice, practice!

From today’s Scripture: “What then will this child be?”—Lk 1:66

From birth onward, every parent wonders about their child’s future. What will s(he) become? Just as John the Baptist had a unique role in Jesus’ mission, each of us can contribute in our own way. All of us have the ability to help establish God’s Kingdom by truly practicing our faith.

Let us pray: Lord, you have blessed me with certain gifts. I pray that I might use them in a way pleasing to you, making your creatures and creation better for having met me.
