In our First Reading, From the Book Of Wisdom

The Author puts these words into the mouth of King Solomon. The king had asked for wisdom, which in Biblical language is not only learning but practical skill and insight as well. Wisdom is a gift of God for which we should pray: " Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart."

The Responsorial Psalm is that wisdom stands for for a good philosophy of life, which is worth more than health.

In the Second Reading, From Hebrews

God's word to us insists on a decision. Whether married or celibate for the sake of God' kingdom, our way of life should be marked by the word of God.

In the Gospel of Mark
10:17-30 or 10:17-27
The rich young man of this reading was searching for something. Jesus challenges him to a life of total renunciation, which he cannot accept. Peter and the Apostles have accepted it and Jesus gives his vision of this kind if life. And what about those who are wealthy and do not feel able to live a life of renunciation? Can they be saved? It is difficult, because there are innumerable pitfalls. But all things are possible with God.

“Lord, I too lack the necessary faith to see the blessings that accompany Your Cross, as well as the many crosses I am given in life. Help me to be purified in my faith so that I can see Your hand at work in all things, even suffering, injustice and persecution. May I see life from Your perspective alone. Jesus, I trust in You."
