In this Sunday’s Gospel, John the Baptist urges people to turn toward God. He baptizes people when they want to change their lives. John insists that Baptism expresses a real change of heart and not a shallow safeguard against God’s judgment.
Note: The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, normally a Holy Day of Obligation, will not be one this year. Its observance is moved to December 9.
