The grisly story of John’s death is told in detail in today’s gospel lesson. When Herod’s daughter dances for him, she thrills him and he offers her whatever she wishes. On the advice of her mother, she asks for the head of the Baptist. Even though John had told Herod it was not lawful for him to marry his brother’s wife, Herod respected John enough not to cause him any harm. Now that would no longer be necessary since John’s head was brought to him on a platter. Sometimes, doing the right thing brings dire consequences. The cross reminds us of that. It also reminds us of the hope and strength we find in the resurrected Jesus the Christ.
