A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.
Today the Gospel introduce us to John the Baptist: a man sent by God to prepare the arrival of the Son of God! John said: "I baptize you with water, but among you stands one whom you do not know; although he comes after me." The one who comes after John is Jesus. He is arriving!
"I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandal," said John. Humility: make yourself small before the "Little God".
