Gospel: John 1:19-28
“Who are you? Let us have an answer.”
John the Baptist answers this question of the priests the way a true prophet and follower of Christ would. He spoke righteously and in the name of the Lord. He knew who he is in front of Christ. He knew who is Christ.
Today, as most of us return to normal day-to-day routines, let us remember to give the right answer to the question of who we are. We are followers of the Risen Lord and we participate in His saving mission to make straight the way of the Lord
