December 23 - St. John of Kanty, Priest
When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son. Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her. When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother said in reply, "No. He will be called John" (Luke 1: 57-60).
John the Baptist had a very special mission to prepare the way for Jesus. God created you with a mission as well and only you can accomplish it. Don’t let Christ down!
Lord, show me what my mission in life is and help me to follow through.
