Saint John the Baptist
Feast Day -- June 24
Saint John the Baptist was Jesus' cousin. An angel told John's father, Zechariah, that he and his wife would have a baby. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, visited Jesus when she was pregnant. John became a preacher. He prepared the way for Jesus by telling people the Good News that God would come to save his People. When Jesus was ready to start his ministry, John baptized him in the River Jordan. King Herod killed John for telling him that he was doing bad things.
Patron of many countries around the world. Saint John lived as a hermit in the desert of Judea.
Saint John, burning and shining light of the world, pray for us. Amen.
