St John of the Cross (M)

Ecclesiasticus 48:1-4, 9-11;
Psalm 80:2-3, 15-16, 18-19; Matthew 17:10-13

Be quiet!

It would be hard to get insurance cover for a prophet. Elijah, Judith, John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, Te Whiti and Tohu, Tupua Tamasese Lealofi, Gandhi, Nelson Madela? The Hebrew word for ‘prophet’ revolves around English words such as ‘proclaim’, ‘call out’, ‘announce’. When we get called out we have two choices: silence the caller, or change our ways. The first option is often more manageable than the second. Have you silenced any prophets lately?
