|The Baptism of Christ|
(Depicting The Holy Trinity: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
by Francesco Albani (1578-1660)
The Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist is June 24, just as daylight begins to decrease - almost six months exactly from the Feast of the Nativity of Jesus (Christmas), December 25, just as the daylight starts to increase!
"He must increase; I must decrease."
- St. John the Baptist (John 3:30)
