At the heart of our Advent preparation stands John the Baptist, who calls us to repent and make a new beginning.
Whether he baptized with a sea shell or dunked the baptized in the river Jordon, John acts as prophet and preparer of the way. His actions guide us today just as they did 2,000 years ago.
