Each of us was anointed priest, prophet, and king.
In this episode, we look at the role of the prophet both in salvation history and in terms of our baptismal call.
The CCC says “The holy People of God shares also in Christ’s prophetic office,” above all in the supernatural sense of faith that belongs to the whole People, lay and clergy, when it “unfailingly adheres to this faith . . . once for all delivered to the saints,” and when it deepens its understanding and becomes Christ’s witness in the midst of this world.”
G.K. Chesterton said, “in an upside-down world such as ours, the prophet is the one who stands on his head so that he might see things aright.”
The featured saint in this episode is Saint Anna Schaffer
She lives a life that reminds us suffering has great beauty and meaning. Her life points us to God’s tremendous love for us and to the Eucharist.
Quotes from St. Anna Schaffer
- “I cannot write by pen how happy I am every time after Holy Communion. Ah, I forget my earthly suffering and the longing of my poor soul draws me every moment to adore my God and Savior hidden in the Blessed Sacrament!”
- “Oh, we cannot value the great love of the dear Savior enough. Day and night His divine Heart, burning with love, rests on our heart and invites us to the heavenly banquet.”
- “Lord humiliate me and raise yourself up”
