Birth of the voice against Herods

Birth of the voice against Herods

Today we are celebrating the solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. Besides Jesus and Mary, St. John the Baptist is the only person whose birth and death days are celebrated in the Catholic Church.

The gift of a child may not have been the only content of the prayers of Zechariah and Elizabeth. But God in His goodness gave them much more than what they had asked for.

By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Zechariah learned what God was doing in bringing two children of diverse nature into the world: the one to announce the arrival of the Saviour of the world and the other the actual redeemer to save his people.

Since Zechariah was a priest and John the Baptist was born under extraordinary circumstances, many could have thought that the Messiah would come from his family.

But John the Baptist was firm and humble enough to confess that he was not the one. He fearlessly challenged the Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, local people and even the king and the queen. Today’s feast reminds us of our responsibility to be prophetic without compromising human and Christian values. -- Bro. Vijay Paul, OSB
