Fee is $35, contact Faith Formation Office at 609-585-0542 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and Church is His Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors”. They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.
