READING I: 1 Kings 8:22-23, 27-30
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 84:3, 4, 5 and 10, 11
GOSPEL: Mark 7:1-13
To the Greeks and ancient Romans, gods were super human men. Solomon shows a much greater understanding of God; he is something infinite that cannot be measured or contained. This is something the other ancients never conceived off and could never grasp. Although the ancient Israelites were unable to put into words the real understanding of their God, there is nothing in scripture that is at odds with most modern understanding of who or what God is. Strange how a nomadic desert dwelling people could get it so right. The scriptures must have been divinely inspired!
