John the Baptist as Model Mystic

John the Baptist, Jesus’ cousin, is a model mystic for us.  He had a unique calling to proclaim the arrival of Jesus’, the Kingdom of God, and for all to “look anew” and “turn around”.  He determined his mission and live his unique life.  Are we not called to do the same thing?  Our Triune Lord must also have a unique call for all of us.  Must he not?  Only in silence, reflection and seeking can we even hope to find it.
