John The Forerunner

Today is the Feast Day of John the Baptist.
This Russion Icon is from the 17th century and is entitled "John the Forerunner"

Prayer of John the Baptist

Troubler of Israel,
Turner of Hearts,
Last but also First--
John the Baptizer!

Make straight a new path,
Through a new wilderness,
And bring a new people,
To the “Great and Fabulous Dear God”
Who awaits and invites us
To a Message that is always
Bigger than we are.

Like you,
May we grow smaller.
