Minute Meditation 12/10
Today's emailed minute meditation:
Hidden in Plain Sight We often miss the prophets in our midst. A few signals might point them out: they disrupt our cozy routines, present new ideas we find unsettling and ask us to reach beyond our comfort zones. — fromCatholic Update: Advent Day-by-Day
"Prophet"...that is a term I would not have used for someone that gets me all riled up. Dictionary.com says that a prophet is a person who speaks for God or a deity, or by divine inspiration. For me, it is a lot easier to think of a prophet as a guy with a beard in a frock and sandals, circa 100a.d. I have a hard time seeing someone in today's light, as a true prophet. It is a good idea to keep an eye out for who is one. I know for me, the Deacon who teaches my RCIA class is a prophet. Each wednesday night, when I leave class, I am always full of ideas and I am ready to take on the world. After a couple of days though, I start to fall back into my routine of selfishness. Luckily I have sunday mornings to put me back in my place. I guess that is the importance of attending and using the church, our home for faith, as a tool to keep the faith in Jesus and God alive in our hearts 24/7. The church is full of modern day prophets, people who can disrupt our routines and make us try harder and be more like Jesus.
