Sirach 14:20-27
Happy is the person who meditates on wisdom
and reasons intelligently,
who reflects in their heart on her ways
and ponders her secrets,
perusing her like a hunter, and lying in wait on her paths;
who peers through her windows and listens at her doors;
who camps near her house and fastens their tent peg to her walls;
who pitches their tent near her,
and so occupies an excellent lodging place;
who places their children under her boughs;
who is sheltered by her from the heat,
and dwells in the midst of her glory.


To have wisdom is the gift of Your Holy Spirit my Lord. Who is wise? The one who takes time to sit in Your Presence, to be silent before You. To listen to Your voice. One who reads Your Word and ponders on it and makes Your Word the rule of life.

Pour Your widom on me O Lord and all those I love for without wisdom, we will be nothing less than fools. Give us wisdom in order that we may please You in all things - that we may be gracious in speech, in thought and in deed. Amen.
