June 24, 2012 – The Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist
John was called to serve the Lord from the moment of conception. God had a great purpose in store for him — to proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ and bring many souls to conversion.
Today’s readings remind us that it is not only St John whom God calls to follow Him and to proclaim Him to the nations. He has called us all. He has great things in store for us. He wants each one of us to bear witness to His truth and bring more men and women to Him.
We must make the choice to answer the call, to give God our all, and to use our lives to serve Him.
Then we are sure to make an impact on the world, to make disciples of all nations, much like St. John did.
