St. Joseph’s Workshop with Father Matthew Spencer, December 17, 2018

On today’s show:

  • Father talks about the wisdom of God. When we say we need wisdom it mean that we need Jesus in our lives. Wisdom is a virtue, a stable disposition. Fearing the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. To grow in wisdom is to know God’s commandments. It is possible to find wisdom because of the Holy Spirit.
  • Father talks about the the Merriam Webster word of the year. They use statistics of how many people look up the word. The world of the year this year is justice. Father brings together justice and wisdom. Justice helps us give God his due. Both justice and wisdom is about holiness.
  • Father looks at the stress for your lives, and parenting. Some countries are changing the work week to four days a week than five days a week. People are still getting the same amount of work done. A new study examined a lot of data, it was part of a national study. After the birth of children people experience stress, they were looking at the difference between the the stress of a woman and a man. Children have a stronger effect on mothers.
  • Father talks about names he has never heard from the Bible. No one names their children certain names. Father talks about the genealogy from Matthew’s Gospel.  There is a powerful underlying understanding to the genealogy, Father shares that with us. God in His wisdom is working all things for the good.
