Welcome to our Parish

August 31, 2014 - "AN EARTHLY ANGEL AND A HEAVENLY MAN"

There is no disputing that ST. JOHN was a great teacher of nations. Far and wide he preached the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Because of this, a series of names are associated with him. These are not arbitrary designations, for they are taken from the Sacred Scriptures and hymnology of the Church. Consider these:

ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST – This is his best known name, for he is the one who baptized our Lord in the waters of the Jordan. St. Matthew writes: “Then came Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

ST. JOHN THE FORERUNNER – He came to announce and prepare the people for the Saviour. St. Matthew quotes Malachi: “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee.”

ST. JOHN THE PROPHET – Again St. Matthew: “What went you out to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.”

ST. JOHN, ANGEL IN THE FLESH – Hymns use this term, proclaiming of him: “Angel, for you have led an incorporeal life . . .”

ST. JOHN THE MARTYR – Again, hymns of the ritual say of John: “Martry, for you have been beheaded for Christ.”

Let us not forget St. John’s HUMILITY when he proclaims of Christ: “Behold the Lamb of God . . . The latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloosen.”
