Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
I have been told many times of how Sacred Scripture has multiple layers of meaning. I was reading Proverbs the other day and it hit me what the hidden- in fact prophetic message was behind
Proverbs 9. It speaks of the Church.
"Wisdom has built her house hewn out of it's seven pillars" (v. 1) The She referred to is as I see it the Holy Catholic Church with her seven sacraments which draw us into the Divine life. Verse 2 tells us "she has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table". We have
the very Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity offered to us at each Holy Mass- upon the 'table of plenty' the Holy Altar. The wisdom of the proverb goes on however I think you get the picture.
What a wonderful gift God has given to us in His Church and how we abuse that gift by taking lightly the great mystery that we are being offered through Her-
the Bride of Christ. Let us pray this Lent that we can grow in appreciation of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Bride. Look to the Cross and rend your hearts today.
In His Merciful Heart,
