The Prophets

The Prophets

If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.

Join your fellow parishioners for this Great Adventure study on the prophets, presented by Thomas Smith. Each week, you will come to know a prophet from Scripture and learn how his message sheds light on our faith and our lives. In getting to know these messengers of God, you will read Scripture and the Catechism, while answering thought­provoking questions and powerful reflections. Plus, you will learn practical ways to apply the messages of the prophets in your own life.

A study on the prophets has been one of the most requested programs from The Great Adventure. Like A Quick Journey and The Bible Timeline, The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy places the Old Testament prophets in context of salvation history, making their personalities and contexts easy to follow, understand, and relate to our lives.

Parishioner Jane McGinniss will begin The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy on Tuesday, January 30 at 7:00 PM. Materials fee for the workbook is $30. For more information or to register for the study visit the registration table in the vestibule after Mass. We encourage you to join us. You will find it enriching and inspirational.
