Hymn to St. John the Baptist
The memory of the just is blessed And the witness of the Lord, shall be sufficient for you, O Forerunner. For you were shown forth, as more venerable than the prophets. And found worthy to baptize in the water Him whom you proclaimed. Therefore you were a champion for the truth, And pleased to bring good tidings even to those in Hades. That God made manifest in the flesh, takes away the sins of the world, And granting to us the great mercy.
THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
“The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much. He runs away when we make the Sign of the Cross.” ~St. Anthony the Great
