(Nativity of St. John the Baptist)
The LORD called me from birth, from my mother’s womb he gave me my name.  He made of me a sharp-edged sword and concealed me in the shadow of his arm.  He made me a polished arrow, in his quiver he hid me.  You are my servant, he said to me, Israel, through whom I show my glory. . . .

It is too little, he says, for you to be my servant, to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and restore the survivors of Israel; I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.  Is_49:1-6

That was John.  That is Jesus.  And this is all of us, as well, beloved!  God’s sword and God’s salvation!  Jesus said, “Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations . . . “  Mt_28:19

We are called to be servants of God, but even more than that!
We are called to be “A LIGHT to the nations.”
Do we have troubles in our world today, beloved?
All the more, the world needs OUR Light!
The LIGHT of Christ!

Called from my mother’s womb!
For, “Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb.  I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are your works.”  Ps 139

Chosen, Called, and Sent . . .
That is – ALL of us!

Let’s bring His love back into our hungry world!

Elizabeth said to Mary, "And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” Lk 1:43-45
