|Saint Amos the Prophet|
Curiously, Saint Amos was a shepherd in the southern kingdom of Judah when the LORD called him to be a prophet … in the northern kingdom of Israel. God’s message through Amos was to encourage justice and genuine spirituality.
Amos was quoted at the Council of Jerusalem:
After this I shall return
and rebuild the fallen hut of David:
from its ruins I shall rebuild it
and raise it up again.
(compare Acts 15:16 with Amos 9:11-12)8th Century B.C.
Feast of Saint Amos: June 15
