Nov. 16 - Wisdom 7: 22 - 8: 1

Fr. Michael MachacekNativity of Our LordNovember 16, 2023

today's other readings are Psalm 119 and Lk. 17: 20-25

Wisdom is much needed in our lies, and in our world right now.  Lord knows we could use a whole lot more wisdom. 

The author of the Book of Wisdom has much to say about it.  In our reading today, we read about the various virtues of it.  As I consider the long list of virtues, I am feel a sense of awe regarding all of  wisdom's attributes.

Yes, when I was confirmed wisdom was one of the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit that I received in the sacrament.  And that gift has not gone away.  Today I pray that this gift is further manifested in my own life, and in the lives of our parishioners, including you, dear reader.
