Vatican City, Nov 14, 2013 / 05:07 am
In his daily homily, Pope Francis warned against a misguided 'spirit of curiosity' which can lead us away from God, stating that it is only through the spirit of wisdom that we are able to be close to him.
"Jesus says that the Kingdom of God does not come in a way that attracts attention: it comes by wisdom," the Pope said during his Nov. 14 homily.
The words of the pontiff were directed to those gathered in the Saint Martha guesthouse of the Vatican for his daily Mass.
Opening his reflections by recalling the day's first reading from the Book of Wisdom, Pope Francis stated that the passage described "the state of the soul of the spiritual man and woman" and of true Christians who live "in the wisdom of the Holy Spirit."
