Today is the Memorial of the Passion of St John the Baptist, or the Beheading of St John the Baptist
"John had said to Herod,
'It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.'"
Readings for the day
Listen to my homily for today:
Blessed Pope John Paul II said in Familiaris Consortio:
The Church is called upon to manifest anew to everyone, with clear and stronger conviction, her will to promote human life by every means and to defend it against all attacks, in whatever condition or state of development it is found.
