Jesse Tree - December 19, 2020 - Day 21

Saturday, December 19

John answered them all, saying, “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am

not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and

fire.” Luke 3:16

John the Baptist proclaims the coming of a new savior and renewed life for all

through the repentance of sins. The ornament today features a scallop shell, a

traditional symbol of baptism in addition to pilgrimages and spreading the word

of the Gospel. Read more about John the Baptist in Luke 1:57-80, 3:1-20; 7:18-30.
