Fr. Dick’s Spiritual Reflection–05/12/2021
Are You A Prophet??
In a world looking for peace and unity and seeing things that work against them, we look for prophets who can speak messages of challenge as well as comfort. Our hope is that these special messengers will be listened to and peace will not be on the horizon but with us now.
I once read this description, “A prophet disturbs the comfortable and comforts the disturbed.” Who are these people today? Are they in your family, at your church or in your list of friends? I hope so and I pray that they will not lose heart or be so discouraged that they stop prophesying.
So here’s a message to reflect on, “How to be good without being miserable.” Sometimes, I figure being good will be so painful and restricting. Then, I observe others being so good at this, I want to follow them. Without saying a word, they are prophetic.
