Monday of the Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time and “Fratelli Tutti” 🚡 Pilgrimage #47

A hyperlapse video of today’s 🚲 pilgrimage from home to St. Joseph’s (πŸ™ for Fr. Hector on his recent appointment as Vicar of Clergy) to St. Mary’s Cathedral (πŸ™ for the Diocese of Amarillo) and back home along the length of the Rock Island Rail Trail) πŸ™ for our Catholic Church and that that I open myself to the “True Wisdom” that emanates from Her.

Let us rejoice in the Lord, with songs let us praise him.

47. Today’s πŸš΅β€β™€οΈ pilgrimage question for contemplation: “Am I seeking ‘wisdom’ that does not demand ‘an encounter with reality'”???

Such a desire often puts on a mask of justice, for where there is no concern for conscience, untruthful reputation gives pleasure. The result is that concealed injustice enjoys a false reputation.

From a sermon of Saint Leo the Great, pope




Information without wisdom

sometimes i place myself in a “direct encounter” with just the “fringes of reality”, (archbishop vigano’s letter to president trump) and even this has proven “intolerable”…

it’s at these times a “mechanism of selection then comes into play, whereby i can immediately separate likes from dislikes, what i consider attractive from what i deem distasteful” and “in the same way,” i “choose the people with whom” i “wish to share” my “world”…

in the end, “Persons or situations” i “find unpleasant or disagreeable are simply deleted in today’s virtual networks (facebook, twitter); a virtual circle is then created, isolating” me “from the real world in which” i am “living”…

On this pilgrimage I pray to become a Catholic who learns to sing the hymn of “True Wisdom” , which teaches me to desire not what is vain, as I stay awake to the fact that “Today, however, everything can be created, disguised and altered” to make it look like one is putting in more than all the rest!!!
