624 - The creation, love act from God

03-Jan-2021 - Second Sunday after Christmas
Word of God 
Wisdom sings her own praises, before her own people she proclaims her glory; In the assembly of the Most High she opens her mouth, in the presence of his hosts she declares her worth:"Then the Creator of all gave me his command, and he who formed me chose the spot for my tent, Saying, 'In Jacob make your dwelling, in Israel your inheritance.' Before all ages, in the beginning, he created me, and through all ages I shall not cease to be. ….Thus in the chosen city he has given me rest, in Jerusalem is my domain. I have struck root among the glorious people, in the portion of the Lord, his heritage. Sir 24,1-2.8-12
This today passage is sourced from the Sirach, one of the books of the wisdom, so called because, in a way sometimes clear and other times silent, they deal with the subject of the Jewish wisdom, as a donation of the divine one. The book of the Sirach can be divided in two parts: the first is a collection of statements, the second is the appreciation of the great characters in the history of Jerusalem. The Law, donated by God to the Jewish nation, represents the expression and the concrete codification. About the divine wisdom, of which mentioned is done by the beginning of the today passage, it is said that “it opens the mouth in the assembly of the Most High”, consequently the church identifies it with the person of the Holy Spirit, of which Jesus Christ makes mention in the gospels. In the Israel though the wisdom of God has created the world, the man and the universe, which live and move following divine harmonies and laws. During the centuries and the millenniums the science will try, later, to give to these laws, intuited also by the other cultures and religions, a physic and mathematical formulation, up to discover a law of universal gravitation. It will be a progressive discovery, which will start with Galileo, it will be improved by Newton and after by Einstein, up to arrive to the present formulations. Whatever its last expression will be, it is now clear that the stars of the universe and the elements of the atom move on harmonic paths as dynamic equilibrium of the attraction of the bodies among themselves. It is the wisdom of God which gives life to all the bodies and things. Jesus Christ, however, has revealed to us that the highest expression of God is not the wisdom, but the love: the entire creation is the result of the love of God. Not only the attraction and the movements of the bodies and of the things make reference to the love of God, but also the ones of the men. In the case of the men, however, due to the sin, those which would have to be attractions become often repulsions, or, as the worst, they are transformed in wars. Our faith, however, says that the engine of the entire universe is the love, and when the men practice the forgiveness, they are in line with the wonderful design of the creation, so entering into the circuitry of God.
