Christian prophecy: Becoming “forerunners” of the Lord

December 19, 2019

The exercise of Christian prophecy in the world is certainly modeled on Jesus himself, but disciples also find another model in St. John the Forerunner, announcing the coming of the Lord: "Prepare the way!" Advent is a time for Christians to reflect on their own roles as forerunners of the Lord, recognizing that the ability to be such is radically dependent on the life of grace. God is in total control of the process of salvation, demanding from the Christian prophet commitment of his or her life to participation in this process through prayer, the Sacraments, and charitable outreach to others.
