Would that Everyone Could be a Prophet

Cycle BOrdinary TimeWeek 26

by Bishop Robert BarronSeptember 27, 2015


Our first reading from the Book of Numbers and the Gospel reading from Mark both highlight a very interesting spiritual predicament, one that is presented numerous times throughout the Bible. It might be summed up as the inclination for members of the Church to subvert the mission of the Church because of their own ego driven desires and pre-occupations.
