Nativity of John the Baptist

John-the-Baptist-

Today we celebrate the birthday of John the Baptist!

The church only celebrates three birthdays- Jesus, Mary (September 8) and today John the Baptist! The reason is that Jesus and Mary were born without original sin and John the Baptist was baptized in his mother's womb, and so was also born without original sin.

Another interesting observation is that Jesus's birthday is right after the winter solstice when the days are getting longer. John the Baptist is born right after the summer solstice and days will start to shorten. Bringing to mind the bible verse John 3:30: 30 "He must become greater; I must become less.”

I am sharing my diigo and Pinterest links for the feast below. Thinking of trying the grasshopper parfait!
