O Sapientia (Wisdom)

pp wisdom

LATIN: O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodidisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviter disponensque omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.

ENGLISH: O Wisdom, who came from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from end to end and ordering all things mightily and sweetly: come, and teach us the way of prudence.

Lord, keep me conscious of your all-knowing, all-loving wisdom, even as I am distracted by activities and obligations these busy days. Remind me that you see all things and know all things, and that you love each of us with a personal, everlasting love, the depths of which we can scarcely imagine. Come Lord, Jesus, come! Amen.
