S01 E11 Messenger of God


Continuing from the last episode, where I unpacked our Priestly Office by virtue of our baptism, I unpack the Prophetic Office of our calling in this episode. A Prophet is the Messenger of God. And I reflect on 3 main talking points: 1) Truth & Authority, 2) Calling & Mission, and 3) Call to be Faithful. As usual, my reflections are based on Sacred Scripture, the CCC and Bible Scholars in accordance to the authority of the Magisterium Church.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Truth & Authority

    • A person is a prophet in the measure that he or she bears the Truth of God.

    • Begin with the pursuit of the Fullness of God’s Truth, and the Authority that safeguards that Truth.

  2. Calling & Mission

    • We are called to proclaim God's Message for the Conversion and/or the New Evangelization.

    • Laity are called equally just as the clergy. By virtue of our baptism, we are called.

  3. Called to be Faithfull

    • "We are called not to be succesful, but to be faithful."
      ~ St. Mother Teresa

    • Beware of the trappings of False Prophets -- We must be faithful to God's Truth.
