At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike. Matthew 11
How blessed are those who know their need for God. These are the childlike, wise enough to realize that all that they are and all that they have comes from their Father in heaven. Such is the great wisdom of Saint Bonaventure whom we remember today.
In all your deeds and words you should look upon this Jesus as your model. Do so whether you area walking or keeping silence, or speaking, whether you are alone or with others. Saint Bonaventure
