1st Reading: is 53:10-11:
Yet it was the will of Yahweh to crush him with grief.
When he makes himself an offering for sin, he will have a long life and see his descendants.
Through him the will of Yahweh is done.
For the anguish he suffered, he will see the light and obtain perfect knowledge. My just servant will justify the multitude; he will bear and take away their guilt.

Weekly Devotion - December 11thHow ironic that the man in Sunday’s Gospel went away sorrowful because of his great wealth. The earthly possessions that had been the cause of great joy in the man’s life were now the source of his sorrow. Money and material possessions are important to us to be sure. Yet sometimes they become too important.

1st Reading: Wis 7:7-11:
I prayed and understanding was given to me; I asked earnestly and the spirit of Wisdom came to me.
I preferred her to scepters and thrones and I considered wealth as nothing compared with her.
I preferred her to any jewel of inestimable value, since gold beside her is nothing but a few grains of sand, and silver but mud. I loved her more than wealth and beauty and even preferred her to light, because her radiance never dies.
She brought with her all other good things, untold riches in her hands.
