Today we commemorate the martyrdom of St. John the Baptist and Fr. Elias preaches on how St. John was precursor of Christ not only in what he said in his life but how he died for what he preached just like Christ. Thus, he also makes the perfect precursor of an exemplary Christian. Ave Maria!

    Good reflections on objective Truth. Comparisons w/Catholics of perplexity today and Herod's perplexity w/John the Baptist. Covered a lot of ground. True Catholics, a gift. to pick up your cross and follow him.
