Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time http://universalis.com/mass.htm
Sunday September 8, 2013
This week’s first reading comes from the book of Wisdom. This book is generally not found in non- Catholic bibles, but is part of our Canon of scripture and was used at the time of Christ. Here the author reminds us that this world alone cannot provide us perfect wisdom. If we are living by a worldly wisdom we are living by a defective wisdom. This should help give us a sense of humility before God and desire to gain Divine Wisdom. The exploration of Divine Wisdom in this book serves as a preparation for the teachings of Christ who is Wisdom incarnate
Our responsorial Psalm 90, starts out reminding us again that our time on earth is very limited and asks God for mercy and wisdom while we are here. Life is short and eternity is long. A wise person lives their life with an eternal perspective.
