Passion of John the Baptist

Jeremiah 1: 17-19; Psalm 71: 1-6,15,16; Mark 6: 17-29

The gift of Martyrdom

All the martyrs show us something of the great battle between good and evil. It is a battle within each of us. It is a battle in our societies. It is a battle in our world. Evil sometimes appears to gain the upper hand. But victory is with God, with the triumph of love and truth. The martyrs share in Christ’s apparent defeat, and they share in his triumph and victory. Blessed be God in his Holy Martyrs. St John the Baptist pray for us.
