3 December Thoughts

December 4, 2012 at 11:09 Leave a comment

Today’s Mass Readings are interesting, considering what is going on. The reading from Isaiah talks of what we come to know as the Gifts of the Spirit: “The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a Spirit of counsel and of strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD”. Fear of the Lord is a matter of loving trust having nothing to do with fear of punishment. Folks know this, so fewer and fewer pay any attention to hierarchs’ threats. Some stay in the pews and try to do what they believe is right. Others walk away and try to do what they believe is right. All of us are trying to do what we believe is right in any situation, and so good happens.

The Reading from Luke says, although you have hidden these thing from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike”. Perhaps the “wise and the learned” are the ones with all the answers, while the “childlike” are the folks with all the questions.
