Today we commemorate the righteous and Prophet, the saint most revered by our Church - the Baptist and Forerunner of the Lord John. Even before his birth, he was chosen by God for a special service - to bring people the light of Truth and Truth.
He was the one who could not silently look at injustice and lies. The Forerunner of the Lord pointed people to a sinful way of life. As a result, he lost his head for defending the Truth.
There is no fate more majestic and tragic than the life of the Forerunner of the Lord John. His death was ordered by evil lust and lies, but his martyrdom became the triumph of Divine Truth.
We have much to learn from this great man—how to defend the truth and be uncompromising towards sin. Truth-lovers at all times were persecuted and persecuted. The truth is always uncomfortable, but you can't live without it.
On this day, I sincerely wish all of us at least one step closer to the spiritual height of John the Baptist, learn the strongest faith and love for the Truth, heavenly wisdom and spiritual courage.
