Sunday Reflection: Birth of John the Baptist (Dec 17, 2017)

The birth of John the Baptist was marking a new chapter in the salvation history. The neighbors and relatives who used to view Elizabeth as disgraceful, came to rejoice with her. Zechariah and Elizabeth did the circumcision of the child on the eighth day according to the Jewish tradition. Zechariah was relieved from his nine-month muteness when he obeyed the directive of Angel Gabriel by naming his child John. His initial reaction when he regained the speech was blessing God.

The believers have to cooperate with the will of God in good times and bad times. We need to be patient to understand God’s plan for us. Like the parents of John, the Catholic parents have to baptize their children within few weeks after the birth of each child. The naming of a child is important and shall be a Christian name respecting the tradition of naming after grandparents. Devotion to one’s own patron saint is to be fostered.
