If you saw someone walking down the street dressed in camel’s hair and eating grasshoppers and honey. Would you consider that person a credible authority? Most likely not. You’d probably think that person was weird at best or perhaps mentally ill. It was a strange thing to do in Jesus’ time, too, but St. John the Baptist did just that, becoming the voice in the desert that prepared others for the coming of the Savior. He spoke the truth regardless of the possible consequences. Today we need countless St. John the Baptists who will be the voice in the desert, speaking the truth regardless of the consequences. You can do it, God will help you and St. John the Baptist will intercede for you!
