Reflections on the Word: Memorial of the Passion of St. John the Baptist – August 29, 2020

God chooses those we don’t think about to be sources of wisdom. God chooses people who we overlook  to do what is right.  God isn’t on “both sides” – God is on the side of right and of justice and reduces to nothing those who think they’re the greatest – even frightened puppet kings like Herod. Because, genuine Christians know that only God is great.
