The Wisdom of Hope

For 16 February 2020, Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, based on 1 Corinthians 2:6â€“10
Yet among the mature we do speak wisdom, though it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to perish. But we speak Godâ€™s wisdom, secret and hidden, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written,
â€œWhat no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the human heart conceived,
what God has prepared for those who love himâ€â€”
these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

Good to hear from you again, classmate! From an old man finally aware of and struggling to make the wisdom of the self-sacrificing love of the cross a reality in my life.
