Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptizer (June 24)
Handout or Bulletin Insert.
Description: Reflection on the scriptures that are read at Mass for the Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptizer invites readers to experience what it means to be wonderfully made by God. The first reading (Isaiah 49:1-6) shows us that God had a special purpose for John the Baptist since before he was born. The Lord did the same for you! Since the moment of your conception, even before you looked human and had a beating heart and a brain that could think, God created you with a special purpose in mind.
This faith enrichment handout or bulletin insert affirms, re-energizes, and builds up the self esteem of readers. It also promotes respect for life and can be used to teach why abortion is a sin.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the week of the Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptizer (June 24) or handout for meditation during Eucharistic Adoraion, a parish retreat or a Respect Life Mass, or in RCIA class.
