Jesus used to hang out with the most unlikely people!

He and John could not be more different!

John was a wild man living in the desert.

He was rough hewn and an ascetic.

His diet was sparse including locusts.

He drank no alcohol.

He had more followers than Jesus.

Wheras Jesus loved to go to parties and banquets.

He wore ordinary dress.

And he enjoyed a glass of wine.

At first he had only 12 disciples.

And yet, John proclaims, as we do at each Mass:

"Behold the Lamb of God!'

And so we pray:

Lord, we are not worthty that you should come to us.

Say but the words and our souls shall be healed.
