Gospel text
Mt Mt 11:2-11
"I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way before you."
Gospel's Commentary
Today, Jesus Christ praises John the Baptist. John did penance and prayer in the desert. Then he preached the conversion to the Jews by saying that the Messiah-Savior had already arrived. Jesus also congratulated the Baptist for his determination and fidelity: "What did you go out to the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind?” -There are men who are like these reeds that appears by the road: they lean to one side or the other as the wind blows. Are you one of those? Remember: Christ is always in fashion!
