Theme: Waiting in hope

What is wisdom? What does it mean to be wise? These are the questions put before us today. In an attempt to find a fresh approach on this timeless topic, I decided to consult the mouths of babes where an eleven-year-old orphan replied: ‘Wisdom means ‘knowing a lot of something’. Then, I asked if there were a difference between being smart and being wise. After a few moments, the response was, ‘A smart person knows a lot of facts but a wise person has knowledge that comes from experience’. Then I put the same question to a catechumen who responded: ‘Wisdom means knowing right from wrong and making right choices’. When I asked again how a person gets wisdom, the reply was, ‘I guess you have to ask God’.

Theme: The truth in the cost of discipleship

The cost of discipleship is set of truth before us as the praying assembly every time we gather around the word of God. This truth, told through many generations and in various accents, has been shaped and colored by a multiplicity of different experiences and motivations. Because the truth is often hard to hear, quite difficult to assimilate and challenging to translate into words and deeds, it is sometimes rejected, is regularly ignored and even more frequently is relegated to a sort of waiting room of our lives until such time as that truth might become more convenient or less disturbing. But despite our every attempt to avoid it, the truth continues to speak. Like the proverbial 2,000 Kilograms elephant in the room that we would rather talk around, the truth remains. The decision to listen and to heed that truth is the daily challenge of every would-be disciple of God, of Jesus.

Theme: Conscience is the way forward

Here goes a common saying: ‘Do all the good you can; by all the means you can; in all the ways you can; in all the places you can; at all the times you can; to all the people you can; as long as ever you can’. This is likening of Christ who was described as someone who “went about doing good… because God was with him” Acts 10:38. Truly good people are who they are and do what they do because they are responsive to the presence of God who enables and empowers them. Guileless and totally lacking in self-importance, the trusting innocence of a child’s heart is the place where believers can meet God. It is there that the docile will experience the power and presence of God. It is there that  the would-be disciples will learn what it means to be good, to do good and to persevere in goodness in spite of the hostility of those less responsive to God.

Theme: All loving God, bless us with wisdom

What if? From time immemorial, flights of fancy and incredible imaginings have been launched by these two small words. What if you could be President, Prime minister, Army Commander, Inspector General of Police, a Mr. Sudil Rupareria for a day; . . . what would you do? What if you won the lottery; how would you spend it? What if you could meet a person of your choice, past or present, living or dead; whom would it be? What if there really were a magic lamp and a genie who could grant you three wishes; what would they be? What if you could travel to any place in the world; where would you go? What if you had the opportunity to pass a law; what would it concern? What if you could cure one of the world’s illnesses; which one would it be? Obviously, the answers to these “What if?” queries would vary, depending upon the respondent’s age, background, circumstances in life, preferences, etc. Young children, for example, may wish to meet Santa Claus or Superman. They may wish for cookies that grow on trees, a trip to Disneyworld or a shorter school day. But those who are more mature in the business of living the faith and making a living would probably reflect that maturity in their answers. Any serious response to a “What if” question would necessarily be rooted in and shaped by the values a person holds.
