Pointing the Obvious.

Tuesday 15th December

Traditionally any picture of John the Baptist, has the saint with  one figure raised. No not as a cricket umpire – Dickie Birdesk.

John the Baptist is a pointer, destined to diminish as Jesus’ star rose. So he is shown with finger raised. 

“Do not look to me, but to Jesus, to God,”

The looking away from self is an Advent theme for this week.

How have you pointed  away from yourself and towards Jesus this Advent?
