Today in the Brothers of St. Charles Borromeo Chapel, in the place where I make my daily meditation, where I encounter personally and intimately with God, I focused on the cross that is in the same rectory, a beautiful Cross; looking at it I asked myself. Why all this? Why such suffering, so much pain, so many falls, beatings, buffets? Was there not another form of demonstrating love for us? Couldn’t God in another manner show us his giving himself for all the world? And I kept a few minutes of silence; I tried to listen to understand better.
After a few minutes, I opened the Sacred Scripture and listened to a beautiful voice say to me: “The Spirit teaches us Wisdom.” all that you see with your eyes, my cross, my suffering, my pain, my blood, you will not understand if you look only with the eyes of this world, with the spirit of this world; in order to understand all your questions, in order to receive the sense of the salvific dimension, you need the Spirit, that comes from God, that penetrates all, to the deepest levels of the same God (cf 1Cor 2:10)
The same Spirit wants to teach you a divine wisdom. St. Paul in the first letter to the Corinthians affirms that only the spirit of God is able to teach us of this said wisdom. “Teaching us the mystery of Divine wisdom, the secret plan that God established from the beginning of to bring us to glory” (1 Cor 2:7)
In order to understand the mystery of the Cross one needs a spiritual experience, an encounter of faith, one needs a mystical view, a mind that goes above pyschology (cf 1 Cor 2:14) It is necessary to distance ourselves from reasonable limitations, human weaknesses and allow ourselves to be guided by the Spirit of God.
Later listening to the explanations of my doubts, I asked God that me may teach me to see, to feel and to understand all the divine mysteries across the Holy Wisdom that the Spirit of God helps me to comprehend and to live my faith as a spiritual man.
1) and you How does this word of God appear to you (1 Cor 2:1-6)?
2,) How do you interpret it?
3) What can you add to share it with our brothers and at the same time increase your faith?
4) We have two types of wisdom, one is human and the other Divine, with which of the two do you identify and live in your life?
Come Lord Jesus!
