Go Prophesize!

In the new testament, Jesus sent out his disciples in pairs granting them the authority to preach the word of God, to drive out demons and to cure the sick. Likewise in the old testament, Amos, who was an ordinary shepherd was chosen by God to be a prophet. He was sent out to prophesize in the King's sanctuary, despite being rebuked by the King and and the King's priests.
Let us ask for graces from God that we may understand the type of calling that he has set out for us. So that we may help spread the Kingdom of God in our neighborhoods and societies through our words and actions which befit a Catholic.
