Excerpt from Prayer Warrior Summit Formation by our Mother Foundress


“Wisdom instructs her children and admonishes those who seek Her.”    (Sir 4:11)

We need to pray constantly for the gift of wisdom.  Even though we received the gifts of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation, they can lay dormant within us if we’re not using them.  We need to constantly activate the gift of wisdom through prayer because we need to see things from God’s point of view, which is quite different from our point of view.  God’s point of view can set us free.  We need to practice more self-denial and pray for an increase of charity and humility.  We need to journal through all the sins, emotions, feelings, but especially this sin of envy.  We need to work it out or envy can take us down very fast and separate us from God.

We need to thank God for whatever good is done no matter who does it.  We need to learn to praise Him in all things and for all things.  In envy, it can be difficult because we are looking around at what God is asking of other people.  So if we find ourselves looking around at what everybody else is doing, what everybody else has, or what God is saying or doing in their lives, envy can come right in and take us down.  St. John of the Cross has some beautiful maxims and one of them is resignation, resignation, resignation, always to God’s will for me, to keep my eyes focused on Him.

Pray for the gift of wisdom.  It’s a gift full of God, full of God’s presence, full of God’s grace, and full of God’s life.  The part of the Armor that goes with the gift of wisdom is the sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17).  The Sword goes with the gift of wisdom because wisdom will transform us daily if we surrender to it, emptying ourselves so we can receive and make room for this gift as Our Lady did.  It will bring us into transforming union.  It will bring us into such union with the Word Himself, Jesus, who is alive within us, so that with Jesus, we too now become the Sword.  This is a mighty weapon to battle Satan and all the ways that he enters our world, our lives, and other people’s lives with this very deep sin of envy.

Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven” (Mt 5:3).  When we can allow the Spirit to empty us of this envy and fill us with wisdom, then we can posses the Kingdom.  This is why the second word of Jesus on the Cross, “This day, you will be with Me in Paradise” (Lk 23:43) will totally put envy to death.  We can nail this sin there.  When we are with Jesus in this kind of Paradise, in this kind of union, and in the Kingdom within, what is there to envy?  We have it all!  We are rich, even though others may think we’re poor.  

“The Lord is my Shepherd; there is nothing I lack”   (Ps 23:1).
