Attire with a message
By Fr Gabriel Julien
As we begin the second Sunday of Advent, Matthew 3:4 states that John the Baptist: “wore clothing of camel’s hair”.
Camel’s hair is clipped from the neck, back, and hump of the animal. It is then properly woven into a coarse, rough and durable garment and though it is often itchy, it is still used for clothing.
