Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification. ~Martin H. Fischer (1879–1962: was a German- born American physician and author.)
Gospel Text: (MT 11:16-19)
Jesus said to the crowds:
“To what shall I compare this generation?
It is like children who sit in marketplaces and call to one another,
‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance,
we sang a dirge but you did not mourn.’
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they said,
‘He is possessed by a demon.’
The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said,
‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard,
a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’
But wisdom is vindicated by her works.”
Jesus did not come into this world to be popular with the crowds, but to be faithful to His Father’s will. Jesus’ Resurrection is the vindication of the Father’s divine wisdom in sending His only-begotten Son into the world to die for the very sinners who crucified Him.
