Lord’s hand was with him.

     We have come to Saint John and ask him like soldiers, like tax collectors:  What shall we do now?
      When the soldiers asked him, the listeners certainly expected the answer:  “Drop this criminal profession and get some other job.”  When the tax collectors asked, the bystanders expected John to say: “Drop that cursed profession and start doing something else.”
      Should we ask Saint John the Baptist:  What shall we do now?; we would hear the same answer, which he gave them:  Honestly fulfill the duties of your profession, your call, and your service for the society.
