In calling people to repentance John had allowed no exceptions and his forthright denunciation of Herod’s relationship with his sister-in-law, Herodias, could not be tolerated.

Daily prayer

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me.

Christ, as a shield overshadow me.

Christ under me; Christ over me;

Christ beside me on my left and my right.

This day be within and without me,

lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.

Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;

in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.

This day be within and without me,

lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.

Christ as a light; Christ as a shield;

Christ beside me on my left and my right.
