On St. John the Baptist


I have a few family and friends who celebrate birthdays and anniversaries on June 24, the Feast of St. John the Baptist.


I learned from the day's homily that St. John is one of only three people who were born without original sin. The two others being Jesus and The Blessed Virgin Mary. The priest also mentioned something we all know - that he died as a reward from Herod for a compelling dance by Herodias's daughter. And that he died for his strong beliefs. In this case, about marriage.


It made me think - What beliefs am I willing to die for? Am I willing to die for principles against abortion, divorce, or same sex marriage? What I know is this - that I do not know the journey that those people have gone through, and I leave judgment to God.


Should a critical situation arise, I hope St. John the Baptist would help me get the courage I need to be able to stand by those beliefs.
