Grosser Zapfenspreich of Saint John the Baptist

Yesterday evening, I went with my friends to a neighboring city to celebrate the Feast of Saint John the Baptist. The above video is commemorating the event

We took part in the blessing of the St John the Baptist fountain and then that of the fire. Afterwards, there was a great honorary military parade. Songs of tradition were played. It was quite delightful to join in the local traditions.

I have noticed a strong devotion throughout this region to Saint John the Baptist. The devotion has been in every Church I have seen in some shape or fashion. Let us seek his intercession and ask him to truly point out to us the Lamb of God. May we behold Him Who has come to save, the pure and worthy Lamb of God!
