…Summary of Homily
St John the Baptist was praised by Jesus Christ our Lord for not yielding to human respect and preaching the truth. The homilist points out that if our Lord came back today he would not find this same virtue even among those who are considered “good Christians.” Our salvation depends on bearing witness to Christ.
In this short traditional Catholic homily we learn about the virtuous parents of St John the Baptist. We consider St John the Baptists remarkable virtues and receive an exhortation to take him as an intercessor in removing the obstacles in our life to Jesus Christ our Lord.
