Reflection From

Fr. John

July 14, 2024

This week we encounter the prophet Amos in the First Reading. Amos, originally from the southern kingdom of Judah, modern day southern Israel, was sent to prophesy in the Northern Kingdom of Israel.

He was sent to the city of Bethel, which was a center for sacrificial worship. It is in Bethel where Amos meets the priest Amaziah and the dialogue between them takes place. Amaziah cannot contain his hate for Amos and the prophetic message he delivered. In response to Amos’ prophecy, Amaziah expels Amos from Bethel. He implies that Amos is a false prophet and tells him to go earn his bread by prophesying.

The time of the Old Testament was full of both true and false prophets. While the false prophets were often very popular, the true prophets of God faced much resistance and criticism, as is evidenced by Amos. Instead of yielding to Amaziah’s claims, Amos responds in faith by stating that it was the Lord who called him to prophesy. He mentions, “I was a shepherd and a dresser of sycamores. The LORD took me from following the flock, and said to me, "Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”” (Amos 7:15) It was not Amos who called himself to prophesy but the Lord who called him. Despite the difficulty, Amos responded to God’s call to prophesy to the people of Bethel. Amos was faithful to God’s command.

As God called Amos to prophesy to the Northern Kingdom, Christ called his twelve apostles in the Gospel to go and proclaim the Kingdom of God. He doesn’t give them any other instructions other than not to bring any money bag or food with them. They are to rely on those to whom they preach for food and to “shake the dust from their feet in testimony” against those who reject their teaching. Before sending out his apostles, Jesus gives them a share in His authority.

Christ does the same with each of us. As members of the baptized faithful, we share in Christ’s mission to go out to all the world and announce the Gospel, whether we are accepted or not. We are each called to share in God’s prophetic work. Through our Baptism in Christ, we are both Priest, Prophet and King. We may not be professional missionaries. However, Christ doesn’t call us to be professionals but to be witnesses. In our actions and our words, we proclaim God’s love and His mercy to a world hungry for Jesus. Like the apostles, we don’t need to bring anything for the journey, but rather we are to rely on God’s providence. He will provide for us. Like the prophet Amos, none of us have called ourselves to this mission, rather it is God who has called us and sent us. We need to respond to Him. It is Jesus who has appointed us to go and be witnesses of His love to everyone we meet. Let us go therefore and not be afraid because we rely not on our own authority but on the authority of Him who sent us.
