The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist
Gospel Mark 6:17-29
Our indifference is that shuts down the voice of truth in ourselves and around us. All the guests of the King did not speak a word against the injustice in the wish of the daughter of Herodias. Because they did not want to displease the king. How many times we kept silence against injustice to keep ourselves in our comfort zone? The beheading of St. John the Baptist is an example of our silent or active participation in the injustice among us. All the more, it’s important not to kill the voice of our own conscience with our own indifference. Respond to the grace of truth and fight injustice.
