John the Baptist appeared in the desert proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Today, John the Baptist appears. There he is, in the desert, preparing the way for the Lord. John was born a little earlier than Jesus and when he was about 30 years old, he served as messenger of the Messiah, the Savior.
-Does Jesus need us to prepare the way? Yes, because He does not want to do anything without you. At Christmas, God will come to our world and the Virgin Mary will lay him down in a manger. But don’t forget this: God wants to be born and live in your heart. Do you give Him permission?
