“A man named John was sent from God. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light” – John 1:6-8
Pope Benedict writes, that we were not made for the ordinary but that we were made for greatness. And it is exactly the pursuit of this greatness that should drive us daily.
To be great not only in the eyes of the world but more so in the eyes of God. To show great love, great mercy and great forgiveness towards others.
The world remembers John the Baptist as one who prepared the path for the coming of Jesus.
