Sunday June 24, 2012 Daily Blog John W Previous 2012 blogs
Gospel says that John the Baptist was born about 6 months before Jesus,
so we celebrate John's birthday today, 6 months before Christmas
birth of any baby is a time of great joy, but John's birth was especially happy
since his mother was "unable to have a baby"
says that 6 month old John jumped in his mother Elizabeth's womb
when Mary and just-conceived Jesus in her womb visited Elizabeth
John "recognised" Jesus....and went on to prepare a way for Jesus
we also recognise Jesus more clearly, more often,
especially in the Scriptures and in the poor
Then we too will experience something of John's joy
personal effort: I've been trying, when visiting prisoners and the sick,
to remember that I'm actually visiting Jesus.
When I put my hand on their head or shoulder for a prayer,
I try to remember I'm actually "touching" Jesus,
and I say in my heart/mind "The Body of Christ"
and answer "Amen"!
24th of the month,
