On the Feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist in the Roman Rite.
“He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as the prophet, Isaias, said… I baptize with water: but there hath stood one in the midst of you, whom you know not. The same is he that shall come after me, who is preferred before me: the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to loose.” (St. John i, 23, 26-27)
