Martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist

  • Saint John had the courage and perseverance to speak the truth at all times. He was honoured as one of the first to encounter Jesus. His whole life pointed to Jesus, even while he was in Elizabeth's womb. Repent, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Behold, the Lamb of God is here to take away the sins of the world! John is imprisoned and killed for defending the truth. We are reminded to have the same courage, boldness and perseverance.
