The Lord might bestow his spirit on them all

“Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the people of the LORD were prophets! Would that the LORD might bestow his spirit on them all!” (NM 11: 29)

Prophesying is not foretelling the future but speaking with enraptured enthusiasm about God’s miracles and seeing the world and our lives from God’s perspective. We can see the world from our limited perspective, which could be quite easily very selfish, or from God’s perspective, when we can see the world much wider and when we look for the common good.

“Your word, O Lord, is truth; consecrate us in the truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
