Saint John the Baptist ~ Cousin of the Lord


John the Baptist

The Feast Date of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist was placed at a neat spot within the calendar ... June 24 ... when the days start getting shorter and shorter.  While, the Feast of the Nativity of Christ occurs when the days start getting longer and longer.  Although we don’t know the real birth dates of these two men, the appointed dates have wonderful symbolism.


He must increase;
I must decrease.
Quote of St. John the Baptist
John 3:30

June 24 is the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist
August 29 is the Feast of the Death of St. John the Baptist
