This weekend we celebrate the birth of the final prophet, John the Baptist, whose message was to prepare for Jesus in the context of repentance and promise. John was called by God from early on, just as we are called in baptism. His role was to point to something, someone, larger than himself. We, too, have been called to do this through the witness of our personal lives. Our calling is far less dramatic, but it is just as real. Let us always strive to point the way to Christ in our daily comings and goings.
