Homilies: The Solemnity of the Nativity of St John the Baptist, Year B

My homily for the Solemnity of the Nativity of St John the Baptist (Year B) as preached during the 5.30pm Saturday evening Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. The readings were Isaiah 49:1-6; Acts 13:22-26; Luke 1:57-66, 80.

“The giving of a name also gives an identity. John’s identity before God is found in his name – “God is gracious” – and we too are known by our name before God.”
