Wisdom has built her house set upon seven pillars; she has slaughtered her beasts, prepared her wine and laid her table. Next, she sent her servants to call from the central square of the city, “Pass by here, you who are fools.“
To the senseless she says, “Come, eat and drink of the bread and wine I have prepared. Give up your foolishness and you will live; take the straight path of discernment.“

1st Reading: 1 KN 19:4-8:
He himself disappeared into the desert going on a day‘s journey. Then he sat down under a broom tree and prayed to die, “That is enough, Yahweh, take away my life for I am dying.“ He lay down and went to sleep under the broom tree. Then an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.“ Elijah looked and saw, at his head, a cake baked on hot stones and a jar of water. He ate and drank, and went back to sleep.
The angel of Yahweh came a second time to him, saying, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too long for you.“ He got up, ate and drank, and on the strength of that food, he traveled for forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mount of God.
