Rejoice as the waiting is almost complete!
John the Baptist took a risk for God.
He resembled someone different than the crowd.
How has the hand of God marked you and your life?
Our world is in need of your prayers and your service.
Let us awaken to the cries of the broken, poor and those on the margins. We are blessed with access to health care, clean water, sanitation, Hope and and ample food. There are those who are deprived which calls forth from us an invitation to respond, to accompany and to witness to the love of God. Summoned courage to journey toward the manger is within. May St. Elizabeth, St. Zachariah and St. John the Baptist pray for us!
