O Savior Jesus, at time of the birth of John the Baptist, his father Zechariah was ministering in the temple, when an angel brought him news that his elderly wife Elizabeth would bear a child and that this boy would be filled with the Holy Spirit. But Zechariah doubted, and because of this was struck dumb until the birth of John the Baptist. I ask Saint John to pray for me when I doubt, that my own hesitancy to believe in You will be converted into strong faith and true conviction. Help me to learn from Your promises that I can always trust in You. Lord Jesus, I do believe; help my unbelief. Saint John the Baptist, pray for me. Amen.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
The birth of Christ is without regard to man; the birth of John the Baptist is without regard to age! ‘Nothing is impossible with God.'”
