BIRTHDAY OF ST JOHN THE BAPTIST

They were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother, Elizabeth, spoke up.  ‘No,’ she said ‘he is to be called John.’  They said to her, ‘But no one in your family has that name’, and made signs to his father to find out what he wanted him called. The father asked for a writing tablet and wrote, ‘His name is John.’

                                                                                                                                                                         Luke 1:59-63

Response to the Psalm:            I thank you for the wonder of my being.
