The Bible doesn't say what St. John the Baptist did from the day he was born until he started baptizing and preaching, but we know he lived and was raised by angels in the wilderness. I guess my question is, what does tradition or church fathers say that St. John did for 30 years in the wilderness? Was he a hermit who prayed all day?
He's the greatest born among women, yet we're only exposed to 6 months of his 30 years. I just wish I could learn more about him.
