“Look and see!” says John the Baptist. He who had been given a special grace of seeing the unseen called those around him to open their eyes and see. To know that this Jesus was God’s Chosen One, the Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world.
Have mercy on us, Lord, as we come before you during this season of Lent, pondering the gift and mystery of your coming and saving us.
Today’s poem comes from the point of view of John the Baptist.
