I have a question about a prayer we prayed in Catholic mass yesterday. Here’s the prayer:
June 24 Prayer after Communion:
Having feasted at the banquet of the heavenly Lamb,
we pray, O Lord,
that, finding joy in the nativity of Saint John the Baptist,
your Church may know as the author of her rebirth
the Christ whose coming John foretold.
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever. A-men.
Who is the “author of her rebirth”?
