Seventh Monday of Ordinary Time

The word of God on high is the fountain of wisdom and her ways are everlasting. To whom has wisdom’s root been revealed? Who knows her subtleties? To whom has the discipline of wisdom been revealed? And who has understood the multiplicity of her ways? There is but one, wise and truly awe-inspiring, seated upon his throne: There is but one, Most High.

All wisdom comes from God. Whether it is the wisdom that guided God’s Will before the creation, the wisdom underlying His Commandments, or the wisdom expressed through human laws, they all have their source, center, and summit in God. Wisdom is rooted in the divine. It cannot be separated from it. And if we want to be wise, then we have to drink from the fountain of wisdom which can only be found in God’s revelations to us. It is in the Scriptures and the traditions of the Church that we discover the knowledge we need to become truly wise. It is not enough to have the Word of God alone, but also the Action of God, which is at the heart of His Church.

Are there any areas of our lives where we are lacking in wisdom? How can we become wiser in God? In what ways can we put into practice the wisdom God has given us?

O Lord, you are the fountain of wisdom. Lead us to drink from you and be wise.
