Commentary on the Gospel of
John the Baptist came announcing the coming of Jesus. In this season of Advent, which is the time of the Lord’s coming, the figure of John the Baptist makes us reflect on the people who have brought Jesus to us. In bringing the Lord into our life, they have also brought us to God. They may be those closest to us, or one of our friends or acquaintances, or even an enemy. But what matters is to recognize in them the way that points to Jesus.
