St. John the Baptist still speaks today, Pope says

.- During the recitation of the Angelus on the Second Sunday of Advent, Pope John Paul II said the call of St. John the Baptists resonates still today, calling mankind to follow Jesus.

Speaking with somewhat difficulty, the Pope said John the Baptists “shows the way that must be traveled, to the people of the third millennium in search of serenity and peace.”

The Holy Father recalled that this liturgical season prepares us to “recall the birth” that took place 2000 years ago, “and we renew our faith in his glorious coming at the end of time.” “We prepare ourselves at the same time to recognize him present in our midst,” he added.

The Pope also said that “our model and guide in this Advent spiritual journey is Mary” in whom God “has found ‘good soil,’ where he has sowed the seeds of a new humanity.”

May She help us prepare “the way of the Lord in us and in the world,” he concluded.
