Reflections on 17th of Sunday Ordinary Time

In today’s Bible readings, we will hear how about God’s wisdom and its importance in our lives. The parables of the treasure in the field and the pearl beyond price describe a wisdom for which no sacrifice is too great. King Solomon’s desire for the wisdom of understanding and right judgment is greatly rewarded by the Lord. The Psalmist proclaims that “I love your commands more than gold.”

St Paul shows us that God has the ultimate divine plan and the wisdom and power to bring it to fulfillment. A plan that calls all — slave and free, women and men to himself and conforms us all in Jesus Christ.
