Aug. 29, 2018 (Memorial of the Beheading of John the baptist)

John’s martyrdom is reported in Mark 6:14-29, today’s Gospel reading. As St. Bede writes in a homily: “John’s suffering showed that Christ would also suffer.” We need to imitate the courage of John by standing firm in our faith and resisting the temptation to compromise the gospel teaching.
