About the prophetic role that Christians are called to: the first great insight I was exposed to was last Sept. We were at the Homeschool Mass for the beginning of the school year. The priest gave a WONDERFUl homily on the role of mothers. He said we are all exercising our prophetic call, because prophets instruct: “Go this way, and not that.” The homeschooling mother does this all day, every day: academically, morally, spiritually, culturally, and beyond. He blessed us and asked the Holy Spirit to direct the direction we gave to our children. I have called upon that memory many times this school year. . .
