Dear Friend in the Lord,
Proclaim Jesus: In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist’s fidelity in his mission of preparing all his disciples to follow Jesus, as the Messiah is truly inspiring. Likewise, we are reminded that our mission in life is to witness to the Truth of Jesus in all that we do, so that He is glorified at all times in our lives.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Seeing Jesus coming towards him, John said, ‘Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. It was of him that I said, “Behind me comes one who has passed ahead of me because he existed before me.” I did not know him myself, and yet my purpose in coming to baptise with water was so that he might be revealed to Israel.’
And John declared, ‘I saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven and rest on him. I did not know him myself, but he who sent me to baptise with water had said to me, “The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and rest is the one who is to baptise with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.’
