Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

St_JohnWhen the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child

she gave birth to a son.
Her neighbors and relatives heard
that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her,
and they rejoiced with her.
When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child,
they were going to call him Zechariah after his father,
but his mother said in reply,
“No. He will be called John.”
But they answered her,
“There is no one among your relatives who has this name.”
So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called.
He asked for a tablet and wrote, “John is his name,”
and all were amazed.
Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed,
and he spoke blessing God.

We attended the 8:30 Mass at St. John the Baptist today. This was a special day for the parish with extra special blessings. First there was a plenary indulgence for attending Mass at the parish under the patronage of St. John. Next there was a final blessing with a 1st class relic of the Saint.

Analysis and Commentary

It looks like Father will be away for a portion of this coming week. According to the bulletin, there will be Communion Services on Monday and Wednesday and the office will be closed on Monday. We wonder if there will be a visiting priest for Masses this weekend.
