'Reconsidering Passionate Faith'
The Passion of St. John the Baptist
"I want you to give me at once on a platter the head of John the Baptist."
- Mark 6:25
Even if we aren't tempted by an outright prosperity gospel calling us to "name and claim" our material hopes, I often stop and consider more subtle distortions that might be creeping into our faith life.
Jesus, with John the Baptist, I embrace your way of sacrificial, faithful passion.
