The Ministry Of John The Baptist

Extract

Flowers with note saying, "Please forgive me"

John the Baptist preached a message of repentance and forgiveness and “People from the whole Judean countryside and all of Jerusalem were going out to him, and he was baptising them in the Jordan River as they confessed their sins”. (Mark 1:4-5)

Thought

God is merciful, he invites us to seek forgiveness; how about asking Him today?

Reflection

Lord Jesus, I humbly come before you, a repeat offender, guide me towards a better way where I can be one with You and your teachings.

Prayer: Priests and Religious

St Paul, great convert and Apostle,
guide all priests and religious.
Help them realise that their actions
speak louder than any words.
Teach them to use their talents
to convey God’s message
but, to rely above all,
on the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
