Ecclus 48: 1-4, 9-11, Ps. 80, Matthew 17: 10-13

Mother of the Prophet

Mother of the Prophet.
In your womb
you carry the greatest
greater than Elijah
greater than Elisha.
Happy were they that saw him.
Happy are we who know
that if we die in his love
we shall live.

A line from Isaiah has relevance
for today’s world:
“To turn the hearts of fathers to their children.”
At this point we can think of Joseph assuming
the role of father of the Prophet,
and ask him to show us how to support
the fathers near us.
