During the month of October, we ‘press on’ To Be Wise. The Cardinal Virtue of Prudence, usually represented by a scroll with a torch, gives the the ability to understand, with the very wisdom and light of Christ, what is the best thing to do at any time of life. When we read its scroll, we grow in our knowledge and understanding. Its torch enables us to see more deeply into confusing things, to know the truth, and to know how to best act. So, this month, we use the virtue of prudence and the gifts of the Holy Spirit as we press on to be wise!
The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2
“Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.” Proverbs 3:7
