The birth and initiation of John the Baptist was an occasion of great grace. The tongue of Zechariah is loosened and he sings God’s praises. Faith unties what had been tied by disbelief.

A strong Faith changes everything. The witness of the Faith of Zechariah and Elizabeth amplifies the response of Mary and Joseph. These generous witnesses inspire everyone.

O gracious God, we give you thanks for the gift of our vocation. By calling every Christian to give witness to divine love, the whole world is renewed.
