October 14 - Today's Reflection
A prophetic sign is not a guess about the future, but a proclamation of the will of God and a statement about his justice.
Jesus did not mince words when it came to defending justice and the rights of others. Often the destiny of prophets is to die at the hands of those who should be listening to them. It might not mean, however, dying physically, but going through the thousand deaths brought on by rejection, alienation, persecution, or insult.
Do you dare to proclaim the truth even when you know that is uncomfortable for many? How do you struggle for justice in school, your neighborhood, work, or community?
