The Word of God is alive and active

As we ponder our readings this week, we may well consider what riches mean to us; what we really value in our lives, our work, our relationships.

The author of the Book of Wisdom, the First Reading, esteems wisdom as the greatest treasure – she is seen as a person closely identified with the Spirit, and the writer prefers her to any other value; everything else is as nothing.

The verses of the Psalm given to us are a prayer for that wisdom, and for love, joy and the favour of the Lord, so that we can live our short lives to the utmost.

In the Second Reading, the Word of God, in the Scriptures or in the person of Jesus, is a living force opening us to the Spirit of God. It continually challenges us: we have no other hiding place.

The Gospel describes the rich man who wishes to follow Jesus but is held back by his great wealth. However, God’s generosity will far outweigh any sacrifice we make.

As we look at the rich man of the Gospel this week, in the midst of our own busy lives, we may consider the quality, rather than the quantity, of our service in God’s Kingdom.


Pope Francis 
Please pray for The Pope and our Shepherds.
God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas, it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.
