Upcoming Feasts & Events
This Sunday, the Baptist is doing himself down in order to elevate Jesus and let his followers know the important One, the Light of the World, is still to come. He is not the light, only the one given the task of pointing out the true light.
St. Peter Canisius (1521-1597). Born in Holland at Nijmegen, he studied in Cologne and joined the Jesuit Order, ordained 1546. He was sent to Germany where he worked to defend and strengthen the faith by his writings and preaching. His Catechism is outstanding for this. He died at Fribourg in Switzerland.
St John of Kenty (1390-1473). Born at Kenty in Crakow, he became a priest and taught for many years in the University there. Also parish priest of Olkusz. Excelling in holiness and charity to his neighbour, he was a true example to his colleagues and students.
A voice cries in the wilderness: Prepare a way for the Lord, make His paths straight. Every valley will be filled in, every mountain and hill be laid low, winding ways will be straightened and rough roads made smooth. And all mankind shall see the salvation of God.
Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened by debauchery and drunkenness and the cars of life, and that day will be sprung on you suddenly, like a trap. Stay awake, paying at all times for the strength to survive everything which is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.
Yes, I am a King. I was born for this; I came into the world for this: to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to My voice.
