The reward of eternal joy

August 29

Feast of the Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist

“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 about St. John the Baptist

Today’s Reflection:

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