Commentary on the Gospel of
True wisdom would among other things, enable us to ask certain key questions about life. Part of this would involve the need to prepare for the end which would surely arrive unannounced. Speaking of wisdom, St. Paul presents the wisdom and the mystery of the cross of Christ which remains a compelling message to humanity. It demonstrates the victory of love over hatred and the superabundant power of God’s mercy and forgiveness.
Only the wise can tap into the resources that Christ offers us by means of his passion, death and resurrection. The call to discipleship involves both taking up our daily cross (and following Christ) and living the mystery of love and forgiveness.
