Wisdom Wednesdays

Catholic Perspectives on Faith, Culture, and Politics


Resplendent and unfading is Wisdom, and she is readily perceived by those who love her, and found by those who seek her,” Book of Wisdom, 6:12

We pray, as Saint Paul prayed for the Ephesians, that you may receive “a spirit of wisdom and revelation.”  Visit with us each Wednesday as we seek the wisdom of many witnesses to the whirl of faith, culture and politics. May God be with us!

Wisdom Wednesday | July 10th

Welcome to Wisdom Wednesday. It is the day after a big Tuesday – when the Vatican published the Instrumentum laboris for the Second Session of the Sixteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. At the heart of the Synod “is a call to joy and to the renewal of the People of God in following the Lord and in their commitment to serving His mission.” It is a call to all the baptised, without exception: “The whole People of God is an agent of the proclamation of the Gospel.”

We have some strong opinions this week, worth reading whether you agree or disagree. Opinions are the views of the writers — presented without endorsement or condemnation.
