The Testimony Of John The Baptist (1)

Extract

Sketch of man standing on WELCOME mat and opening door

John the Baptist was standing with two of his disciples when Jesus passed by. The two disciples followed him. When Jesus turned and inquired, “What do you want?” they asked, “Rabbi, where are you staying?”

Jesus invited them to come and see. They accepted and stayed with him that day. (John 1:35-42)

Thought

How open is my home to strangers?

How open is my heart to the troubles of others?

Reflection

Lord Jesus, our Redeemer and Saviour, strengthen my faith, forgive me my failings and grant me the burning fire of your Divine love.

Prayer – Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful,
and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created,
and You shall renew the face of the earth.

Oh God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit
instructed the hearts of the faithful.
Grant, that by the same Spirit we may be truly wise and
ever rejoice in His consolation.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
