Dec. 24, 2015 (Luke 1:67-79)

“You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High.” This is from Zachariah’s Canticle where he calls his son, John the Baptist, this important role as prophet. John is truly great in God’s eyes but he is not the Son of the Most High, that’s Jesus. John is a resource, not “the source.” In that way, John is like the rest of us: called to announce and serve the Lord.
