Lo, I will send you
Elijah, the prophet,
Before the day of the LORD comes,
the great and terrible day,
To turn the hearts of the fathers to their children,
and the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike
the land with doom.
Our current day and age is in desperate need of prophets...those people of God who have the courage, strength and determination to speak up for TRUTH! As a Lay Carmelite, I have a special place in my heart for the Prophet Elijah. His quiet yet powerful ways are to be imitated. He was greatly loved by the Lord and aside from Mary is the only other human being whose body was carried up to heaven.
