Jeremiah 26:11-16, 24; Psalm 69: 15-16, 30-34, Matthew 14: 1-12

Prophets risk death

Both John the Baptist and Jeremiah knew they were risking death when they spoke up against evil. In our day many risk their lives or at least imprisonment as they speak the truth to those in power. In our own lives we will probably not have to risk death by speaking the truth but how courageous are we in condemning so many evils in our own society: abortion, euthanasia, human slavery, the huge difference between the very rich and the very poor. In what way can I prophesy against these and other evils of our time?
