So I’m sure many of you during school have had a teacher like Professor Trelawney. That’s right. Someone is a bit goofy, and she is someone who has a few screws loose but is nice. Professor Trelawney is a prophet, but the thing with Professor Trelawney is that she barely ever gets anything right.
But who is someone who predicts the future like a rockstar? The prophet Isaiah. And the first reading today says, “the people who walk in darkness have seen a great light. There will be a light that comes from the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.” It’s revealed in the gospel today that Jesus, his hometown, where he’s from, is from the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. And so the prophet Isaiah says, “a light will come from this place.” This Sunday, we can take to heart that we need to read more of the prophets. The second thing is God the father; he always keeps his promises. So he always keeps his promises no matter how patient we may have to be, no matter how much we may have to wait.
