Beheading of John the Baptist

Today we celebrate the beheading of John the Baptist, the forerunner who proclaimed the coming of Christ. We hear Zechariah say to his son, "You, child, will be called prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways..." John the Baptist was called to great things and fulfilled his calling by preaching and proclaiming Christ who was yet to come to prepare the people for His arrival.

May we likewise preach Christ to our friends, family, coworkers, and those we meet, to help them open their heart to the Lord when He calls them.
