O Wisdom

Wisdom that comest out of the mouth of the Most High, that reachest from one end to another, and orderest all things mightily and sweetly, come to teach us the way of prudence!

When I told my kids some of my plans to celebrate the O antiphons this year, Sam said we could call it "Eating through the Antiphons" and Gabe liked, "Eatiphons."  Nonetheless I love the connection food has in celebration in the liturgical year.

Today at dinner (which will be quick because the kids also have a piano recital at the nursing home!) we will have a sweet piece of chocolate.  But at lunch time we will feed our minds and read words of wisdom from the book of Proverbs!

O Sapientia, quƦ ex ore Altissimi prodiisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviterque disponens omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiƦ.

Isaias 11:2-3
And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: the spirit of wisdom, and of understanding, the spirit of counsel, and of fortitude, the spirit of knowledge, and of godliness. And he shall be filled with the spirit of the fear of the Lord, He shall not judge according to the sight of the eyes, nor reprove according to the hearing of the ears.

Isaias 28:29
This also is come forth from the Lord God of hosts, to make his counsel wonderful, and magnify justice.
