Prayer to St. John the Baptist.
Oh God, you gave St. Elizabeth, in her
old age, The gift of a son, St. John the Baptist,
who would prepare the way for Jesus to begin
His Ministry here on earth.
Lord, fill your people with the joy of possessing
graces like those of Saint John the Baptist,
and direct the minds of all us in the way of peace.
St. John was martyred for truth and justice,
so may we Dear God, energetically profess
our Faith in You, and help us to lead others to
Your way, Your truth, and your life.
