The greatest human who ever lived (according to Jesus) came into the world to point to something beyond himself, something greater than himself. The Church when it is really being the Church does the same thing.
As we hear the story of the early ministry of John the Baptist, and as we turn the corner on this year’s Advent season, our time of waiting is coming to an end and the promised restoration is on the horizon. Christ is among us for those who have eyes and ears to see and hear. God grant us the grace to point others to Jesus in this moment.
