Father Joseph Roche
There are twelve Minor Prophets of the Old Testament: Zephaniah, Amos, Micah, Hosea, Ezekiel, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Obadiah, Jonah, Habakkuk and Nahum. Their works were shorter in length, e.g. Amos 14 Chapters to Obadiah one chapter. These are the Major Prophets: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel. their works were of longer duration They predicted the coming of the Messiah. This is seen more in Isaiah then in any other. It is the reason that they are used in the readings of the four Sundays of Advent. The prophet was one called by God to bring God’s people back to him. Israel was called as Gods chosen people by the covenant at Mount Sinai. It was when this relationship broke down when the people left the Lord God that the prophets were sent to lead them back to the Lord. It was God speaking through the prophet to his people “living Word of a living God”.
Look at your sons and daughters with love, We know that you feel sorry to the core for those who suffer the most. Your Son Jesus healed so many, restoring sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, speech to the mute and walking to the disabled. Today, we pray for those who have darkened hearts with sadness and pain; Brothers and Sisters lost in depression and extreme exhaustion. Send your Spirit upon them to find rest and comfort. And give us a heart to love and support them, opening to them paths of hope and new life. Amen
