Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Wisdom 7:22 – 8:1
Through the gifting of the Holy Spirit, the potential for true wisdom – and her sister, holiness – are within each baptised person. Like a rosebud curled up, wisdom awaits her blooming in each of our lives. Life’s beauty and challenges are ever present, calling each one to contemplate the grace and mercy of our God, who calls us to love beyond hurt to love some more. This is how deep wisdom unfolds in our hearts and minds as the days and years of our lives lead one to the other. As I let God’s wisdom unfold within I am shaped into the likeness of Christ Jesus, into true holiness. Am I allowing the wisdom of God to unfurl within me? Unfold within me, Lord, your wisdom, that I, like Christ Jesus, might be holy.
The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119)
In every generations wisdom passes into holy souls and makes them friends of God, and prophets...
The Book of Wisdom 7:27
