    Being more fervent and effective witnesses
    This week's gospel passage puts the spotlight on John the Baptist and his role as herald, or messenger, of the good news of Jesus Christ. We remember how he leapt for joy while in the womb of his mother Elizabeth when she received Mary, who was herself pregnant with Jesus. Now we see John pointing the way to Jesus. "I baptize you with water, but among you stands one whom you do not know; although he comes after me, I am not worthy to untie the straps of his sandals". As Christians we, too, have a role to play as witnesses for Christ. And what better role model can we have than John the Baptist? John was a straight shooter. There's no deceit in him and no hint of an inflated ego. He did not call attention to himself but gave testimony to the light, which is Christ. His leaping in his mother's womb gives the impression of someone who is joyful or passionate. May God grant us the spirit and passion of John the Baptist for us to be more fervent and effective witnesses of Christ in our lives.
