John the Baptist, Patron Saint of Conversion

John the Baptist is regarded as the precursor of Jesus Christ. A very well-known preacher, he gave sermons about the proximity of God's Final Judgement. He asked people to repent for their sins and baptised those who apologised in self-preparation for the Lord to come. According to the Scriptures, it was John only who recognised Jesus and decreed Him as the Messiah of the people. 

John grew up to become a strong man who spent lots of time in the wilderness praying without unnecessary distractions. The Bible describes him as someone of great wisdom, but with a rough appearance: He wore crude clothes made of camel skins and ate wild food like locusts and raw honey. The Gospel of Mark says that John's work in the wilderness fulfilled a prophecy from the Book of Isaiah in the Old Testament (Torah) that says "the voice of one crying out in the wilderness" will usher in the Messiah's ministry work and announce "Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight."
