“John went throughout the whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah . . .”
- Imagine John the Baptist preaching repentance and the forgiveness of sins today.
- What must have moved John’s heart and soul to preach this way so openly?
- What gift of grace do you need to be more committed to living with a forgiving, healing heart in our world today where so many injustices are being committed?
Heritage word—“The King of Kings has come into the midst of a strife-filled world and has proclaimed with His Life and in His words: Goodness triumphs over evil and Love is more powerful than hate or cynicism or rejection. Truth will set us free. Hope is stronger than despair or depression. Peace will overpower conflict.”
(Sister Joan Marie, 9thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
