What is a prophet?

Artist: Jose Andres de Vera y Paysal

I was looking for something to post tonight that would go with this morning's readings and I found this marvelous sentence:
A prophet is not one who looks into the future, but one who has insight into the present.
It is from a brief article entitled "Who Does He Think He Is?" by Dianne Bergant, C.S.A. in America magazine. It is very thought provoking - the article, I mean - and I recommend that you go on over and read the whole thing. It won't take very long.

  1. Ellie, thanks for the article. I did read it and actually left a comment there.
