Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31
When one ﬁnds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond
pearls. (Proverbs 31:10).
In 1843, American author Nathaniel Hawthorne published a
short story called “The Birthmark.” The story focuses on a
beauful woman, Georgiana, who has one ﬂaw: a birthmark on her face. Her husband, Aylmer, is a scienst who
wants Georgiana to be perfect. So he concocts a poon to
remove the birthmark. Unsure but wanng to please her
husband, Georgiana drinks the poon. The birthmark
slowly fades, but as it does, so dies Georgiana. In the end,
she dies, leaving a ﬂawless corpse.
How o)en do we act like Aylmer the scienst? How o)en
do we nitpick at our spouses instead of praising them for all
the ways they bring us joy, hold our families together, and
support us in our lives of faith?
Today’s ﬁrst reading describes the characteriscs of an
honorable wife. She brings her husband good, and she
devotes herself unringly to her family. She is diligent in
running her household, she reaches out to the poor, she
sacriﬁces much for her family, and most of all, she fears the
Lord and follows his commands.
Scholars think that readings like this one were used as
models teach young Jewish women, like the Virgin Mary.
It’s no wonder why! This descripon of an industrious,
prayerful woman has much to teach us – men and women
alike – about how to arrange our days. It depicts a home
life that is wholesome and frui.ul. It depicts a home where
spouses honor each other and where children learn the
values of faith, hard work, and mutual respect.
Of course, no home is as ﬂawless as the home depicted in
this reading. We are, a)er all, fallible human beings! But
that doesn’t mean we cannot all aspire to this perfect ideal.
Just remember Aylmer: be sure not to kill each other in the
“Holy Mary, Mother of God, help me to follow your example
in everything I do.”
Questions To Ponder This Week
What are the particular talents God has given to me?
What gift have I not developed as I had hoped to?
What could I still do?
Am I willing to take risks with what I have been given?
Come deepen your faith together with other young people! This
year the YOUCAT sessions are travelling! The first session, we will
be hosted by the McGill Newman Center on November 20, 2014 at
7:30P.M. with Archbishop Christian Lépine! A time of prayer and
worship will be animated by the students of McGill Newman Centre
and members of the Challenge Movement. All are welcomed!
