We are invited to a great feast! “Wisdom has spread her table” and she calls us to “come eat of her food and drink her wine”, so that we may “advance in the way of understanding”. There are a few requisites: “whoever is simple turn in here, to those who lack understanding come eat of the food and drink of the wine. Forsake foolishness that you may live”.
The readings present two types of hunger, God’s concern for both, and two types of bread for response. The message I have today is that the Body of Christ, we the Church, are called to do the same, respond to both types of hunger with both types of bread.
