The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Nativity of St. John the Baptist

JohnSt. John the Baptist certainly did point The Way, to the Lamb of God, serving a crucial hinge between the prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures and the New Testament. Today the church celebrates his birth with a solemnity. I like this sculpture which shows his seriousness of purpose and his classic gesture of pointing the way to Christ.
