The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist (31).
Saint John the Baptist was called by God to be the precursor of His divine Son. When Saint John was thirty years old, the faithful minister of the Lord began to discharge his mission. He proclaimed the Messiah, who was of his own age but whom he had never seen, when one day Jesus came to be baptized by him in the Jordan.
