7th Sunday of Ordinary Time : Februar 19, 2017

What is the basis for wisdom of this world?
In the Second Reading today, Paul poses this essential question. For him, the wisdom of the world is transitory and, at times, leads to a trap into which these purportedly “wise” people fall. God’s wisdom, on the other hand, prevails, and it makes no sense to look for the wisdom of the world without first finding the wisdom of God. This message was addressed to the Corinthians, but it also speaks to us today, as we find ourselves in a culture where material goods are worth more than the intangible, spiritual gifts that God gives us to better walk in his ways. While the Gospel continues to unveil the teachings of Jesus to his disciples, the second reading reminds us that we are temples of the Holy Spirit. We belong to a Church that is called to be the new people of God, a pilgrim community committed to proclaim the reign of peace and justice, in which all of us are called to serve. If we wish to understand this message, Saint Paul invites us to open our hearts to the wisdom of God, not the wisdom of the world hat almost always creates divisions among us.

Both this letter and the Gospel text may serve our community groups, causing us to reflect on the values of Christian families, and how to face the challenges that our society presents us.

How can we keep the balance between progress and tradition in our faith?

Human beings are unique

February 19, 2017

81. Human beings, even if we postulate a process of evolution, also possess a uniqueness which cannot be fully explained by the evolution of other open systems. Each of us has his or her own personal identity and is capable of entering into dialogue with others and with God himself. Our capacity to reason, to develop arguments, to be inventive, to interpret reality and to create art, along with other not yet discovered capacities, are signs of a uniqueness which transcends the spheres of physics and biology. The sheer novelty involved in the emergence of a personal being within a material universe presupposes a direct action of God and a particular call to life and to relationship on the part of a “Thou” who addresses himself to another “thou”. The biblical accounts of creation invite us to see each human being as a subject who can never be reduced to the status of an object.
