MANY SOURCES OF WISDOM

Other traditions

Many sources of wisdom

Other religions

NOTE: That Saint Thomas tells us about Saint Francis shows something about wisdom. Don’t be afraid to learn from other sources and from traditions other than your own. Although Saint Thomas is a Dominican, he knows that there is wisdom to be learned from the story of Saint Francis. One of the things that we may do today is to learn from religions other than our own. We may want to investigate Zen Buddhism to see what we can learn from it. (Dante, if he were alive, may or may not agree.)
