Everyday life is not less holy when it takes place outside the sanctuary. Jesus—the model of the prophet in the marketplace—points us to recognizing that the goal of sacramental priesthood is to illuminate the priestliness of all human existence.
When we see Jesus’ priesthood, according to the Gospels, we can infer his way of dealing with the people around him. He behaved simply and directly, hence catching people off-guard.
Jesus spoke to the rich and the poor, the respectable and the outcast, the weak and the powerful with the same freedom. He had followers from a broad cross section of society. He ate with everybody. He broke down walls of prejudice. He did not speak primarily about political issues, but his preaching had practical implications in all areas of life.
Do not be stuck in the mindset that you need to be in full-time ministry to be able to advance God´s Kingdom. Archbishop Jordan’s book, Prophet in the Marketplace is now available via the Book of the Month Club.
