June 9, “The Word of God: Contemplating Divine Wisdom”, Michael Kolarcik, S.J.

How do we hear the Word of God in our lives? How do we even expect God to speak to us? The Holy Scriptures speak of God communicating not only through words, but through events, actions, gifts and tasks. Scripture itself directs our attention to expect God’s voice to be noticed in the myriad events of life around us and in the movements within our heart.  The Wisdom tradition took seriously the fact that if God is the creator of the universe and the fashioner of the human heart, then we encounter the voice of God embedded in creation, in human history and in our own personal experiences, both light and dark.
