Happy Birthday, JB

Happy Birthday, St. John the Baptist!

"When John was preaching the Lord's coming he was asked, "Who are you?" And he replied: "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness." The voice is John, but the Lord "in the beginning was the Word." John was a voice that lasted only for a time; Christ, the Word in the beginning, is eternal."

St. Augustine

This morning on the Feast of St. John the Baptist we heard that there is a modern John the Baptist and his name is .....Billy Graham!
Now this is a man worthy of respect but he is NOT a St. John the Baptist whose birth is celebrated as a Solemnity in the Church and who was sanctified in the womb by the presence of Jesus within Mary.
