Feast of the Martyrdom of St. John Baptist

Saint Bede the Venerable on St. John the Baptist:St JohntheBaptistbeheading 

“His persecutors had demanded not that he should deny Christ, but only that he should keep silent about the truth. But to endure temporal agonies for the sake of the truth was not a heavy burden for such men as John; rather it was easily borne and even desirable, for he knew eternal joy would be his reward.”

                                                           - St. Bede the Venerable

 

For Reflection: 

What am I willing to endure for the sake of the truth – of abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research, same-sex unions? How can I best proclaim the truth of these given my state of life and my personal circumstances?
