“Wisdom breathes life into her children and admonishes those who seek her. He who loves her loves life; those who seek her will be embraced by the Lord” (Sir.4:11-12).
Forgive us, Lord Jesus, when there are times we think more about our various affiliations like religion that we forget the need for communion of minds and hearts in you.
Like John in the gospel, there are times we feel so entitled in life simply because we are with you, believing that we have the monopoly of doing what is right and what is good.
Instead of building bridges so we could be linked together as one, we put up walls that confine us with our own group but apart from others.
Enlighten us O Lord with your wisdom, finding the great truth that God dwells within each one of us despite our many differences in color and creed.
Give us your grace of wisdom and truth, fill us with your life so we may share your life freely with one another.
May God our Father embrace us with His great love and wisdom to drive away the demons and evil within us that keep us apart. Amen.Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II, Parokya ng San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria, Bulacan.
