Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding

Let us pray for the protection of the United States of America.

Sir 4:11-19

Wisdom breathes life into her children and admonishes those who seek her. He who loves her loves life; those who seek her will be embraced by the Lord. He who holds her fast inherits glory; wherever he dwells, the LORD bestows blessings.

she will heap upon him treasures of knowledge and an understanding of justice.

-WISDOM makes the soul responsive to God in the contemplation of divine things. Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding are all gifts of the Holy Spirit, and Wisdom is the highest of these gifts. We may know and understand something, but we must ponder- asking to see as God sees- to have WISDOM.

We must pray, and seek God's Truth. When we trust only in ourselves, in our knowledge, in our understanding, the book of Sirach warns:

But if he fails her, she will abandon him and deliver him into the hands of despoilers.

Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.
