"He must increase, I must decrease."

Almighty God, by whose providence your servant John the Baptist 
was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of your Son our Savior 
by preaching repentance: Make us so to follow his teaching and holy life, 
that we may truly repent according to his preaching; and,  following his example, constantly speak the truth, boldly rebuke vice, and patiently suffer for the truth’s sake; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you 
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
