Welcome to St. Ambrose ! We are so glad you are able to join us today to celebrate the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.
WISDOM: We consider wisdom today. The first reading from the book of Wisdom presents this precious gift as a feminine spirit, a very desirable virtue sought by many and graciously present to all who seek her. In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells a parable to illustrate wisdom in a practical, measurable way. The wise will conserve their resources, use them prudently, and mark the passing of time. The foolish, on the other hand, not planning ahead, will be in the dark. Both of these readings tell us how accessible wisdom is to all who simply and honestly seek it. Paul’s words to the Thessalonians are not about wisdom, but describe one result of true wisdom: To the wise person of faith even death holds no terror. Our faith in Jesus’ resurrection tells us we will all one day rise to new life in Christ.
Open your heart to see God’s presence in the ordinary moments of life and be grateful for the many blessings that He sends you each day. Go out and make it a great week!
