“He said to them, ‘Surely you will quote me this proverb, ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say, ‘Do here in your native place the things that we have heard done in Capernaum.’ And he said, ‘Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place.”
- A prophet’s words and lifestyle tend to prick our consciences.
- Are you aware of any prophets like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in our day?
- What message do they convey to you?
Heritage word—“Joy in the Lord has the special advantage of conferring tireless energy upon our souls, in order that we may accomplish the most difficult tasks of perfection with ease and alacrity.”
(Mother Mary Chrysostom, 2ndSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
