Gospel: Lk 1:57-66,80
“The hand of the Lord was with him”
The birth of St John the Baptist to aging parents Elizabeth and Zechariah showed great mercy and taught us to learn to trust God. God’s will was clear in his life. St. John prepared the way for Christ with his life and witness. It was no easy path. Tempted in the dessert, locked in prison and had moments of doubts about Jesus being the Messiah.
This is the path of following shown to us, quite the road less-travelled. Yet there is no gratifying comfort and assurance knowing that in all our ways the “hand of the Lord” goes before us.
Lord, help us contemplate in humility what You can do in our lives, as You exceedingly go beyond our imagination.
