By Brother Francis Maluf, M.I.C.M.
Holy scripture is filled with overflowing praise for wisdom. Not the wisdom of the world, but the wisdom that consists in choosing the best means and acting in accordance in order to arrive at our ultimate end, eternal life. “More precious than all riches: and all the things that are desired are not to be compared with her” (Proverbs 3:15). And, again “Get wisdom, because it is better than gold” (Proverbs 16:16). Possibly the only course ever dedicated to the subject of sapientia, Brother Francis’ six classes examine both natural and supernatural wisdom in the light of the inspired word of God. Wisdom is the highest value, one to which our speaker has dedicated his whole life. Father Leonard Feeney gave Brother Francis the assignment in the early 1940s to “teach wisdom.” He has never wavered in fulfilling that mandate. The lessons covered with such grace in these six lectures — the fruit of over forty years of meditation — are a delight to savor. Most importantly, they serve as an inspiration to imitate the saints, the wisest and happiest of all who have walked this earth.
The first lecture of this course is below.
