St. John the Baptist Comments

John the Baptist was the son of Zachary, a priest of the Temple in Jerusalem, and Elizabeth, a kinswoman of Mary who visited her.

    Yes, indeed you are born on a very special day. If you did your research then you would
    definitely know about st john the baptist. He is one of the greatest miracle saints, that is if you know how to pray. A lot of people appreciate him because of all the miracle favors.
    Reading your name here, I can see your last name is definitely french so you are probably Haitian or your family is. Well if your family is indeed catholic ask them about st john the baptist. His feast day is a holiday in Canada just a little hint.

    Because St John was born three months before Jesus, I believe that the feast that we celebrate every June 24 is his birthday. About the date of his death, isn't it stated in his story that the feast for his beheading is August 9? The year? I think St John died three years before Jesus.
