Fr. Frank talks about a new kind of prophecy

Contemporary Prophets Use Few Words


Often throughout the liturgical year we hear readings from the prophets found in the Hebrew Bible. These men and women are not telling the Hebrews nor ourselves about some future event. They are not as many think predicting the future.

In the Hebrew tradition God selects men and women to be a thorn in the side of his people when they stray from the love relationship he has formed with them. God wants to remind them of some aspect of the relationship that needs attention.

These men and women are his prophets, his spokesperson. They may call their brothers and sisters back to the covenant by what they say or what they do. So, the prophet communicates in a way that reaches the listener and causes them to think about how they live or what they believe in relationship to their relationship to God. Read More

  • Thank you again for the amazing weekend! The retreat was wonderful and the sacredness of these grounds is priceless. You feel the love the minute you drive in. May God Bless you all for your ministry – Abundantly!!!

  • It was my first time at a retreat-life long Catholic 63 years old ­– about time! I was sort of concerned about the silence factor and my, what a peaceful-prayerful-wonderful experience it has been. Thank you for the silence.

  • My third retreat at the St. Anthony Spirituality Center was like coming home – welcoming, safe, and prayerful. I felt cared for and could experience God’s love on many levels.

  • St. Anthony’s is a very warm, welcoming and safe haven. I love to leave the noisy world we live in and come into a world of silence. We need this time to get our focus back and become rooted again in our faith, our journey.

  • The conference was very well presented. The speakers gave me much to think about. I very much enjoyed walking on the grounds of St. Anthony's. What a beautiful place! I felt so close to God and his creation.

  • I always feel truly welcome at St. Anthony's. You all are so hospitable. The beautiful surroundings in and outside makes prayer easy. I'm going home refreshed and renewed.

  • From the minute I entered, I was welcomed and treated like I belonged here. Like I had come home. What a wonderful experience!
