St. John the Baptist, the voice in the wilderness, calls out to us in this snuggly Sew-a-Saint fabric. A cousin to Jesus, he is the spiritual successor of the prophet Elijah who preached of the coming of Christ. He lived a humble life, wearing a robe of camel hair and feasting on locust and wild honey.
While in the wilderness, John offers baptism to all who come. This baptism is for the forgiveness of sin, though, as he tells all that another will come after him who will not baptize with water, but with the Holy Spirit! He was speaking of Jesus, who came to John and was baptized by him in the river Jordan. As he emerges from the water, the heavens open and the Holy Spirit descends on him “like a dove”.
