17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 27, 2014

WISDOM AND ACCOMPANIMENT 

According to our readings today, one might could summarize wisdom as the treasure in the field and the pearl of great price.  Once we have found wisdom, then we will know the love of God and all things will be understood as the glory of God.

But how do we receive or come to know this wisdom?  And what do we do with it once we have known it?

As the encyclical, Evangelii Gaudim, speaks of it – with wisdom, we will engage in the “art of accompaniment” and remove our sandels before the sacred ground of the other. We will listen to them knowing that they are helping us to listen to God.
