Following John the Baptists imprisonment, “Jesus went into Galilee and proclaimed the Gospel of God”. (Mark 1:14)
John the Baptist, who had ‘prepared his way’, was now in prison but Jesus’ own life of preaching and conversion would continue, although sadly without the Greatest Prophet, John.
Lord Jesus, help me to express my trust in you through my words and actions, enabling others to see and follow your Gospel teachings. Amen.
Prayer: Stillness of Soul (St John of the Cross)
O Blessed Jesus,
give me stillness of soul in You.
Let Your mighty calmness reign in me.
O King of Gentleness,
King of Peace.
