Default What is Wisdom doing?

The Book of Wisdom reads,"She reacheth therefore from end to end mightily, and ordereth all things sweetly." (Wis 8:1) St. Augustine wrote a number of times on this quote, one of which states, "Where that which the Scripture saith of the same wisdom, "For it is the brightness of eternal light?" (Wis 7:26) Where what it was said of it again: "It powerfully reaches from one end even to the end, and ordereth all things sweetly?"(Wis 8:1) Whatever the Father doth, he doth through the Son; through his wisdom and his power he doth..."(Tractates of the Gospel of John, 21, 2) And Paul VI wrote, "One is the community of peoples, one their origin, for God made the whole human race to live over the face of the earth. One also is their final goal, God. His providence, His manifiestations of his goodness, His saving design extend to all men, (cf. Wis 8:1, Acts 14:17, Rom 2:6, 7, 1 Tim 2:4) until that time when the elect will be united in that holy city, the city abaze with the glory of God, where the nations will walk in his light." (Nostra aetate, 1) St. John of the Cross said (of Wis 8:1), "It is clear, then, from these fundamental points, that if God is to move the soul and to raise it up from the extreme depth of its lowliness to the extreme height of it loftiness, in Divine union with Him, He must do it with order and sweetness and according to the nature of the soul itself." (Ascent to Mount Carmel, 2, 17, 3)

Now, the nature of the soul depends on grace ordinary given through the Sacraments of the ordained priesthood. Who are some examples of priests that our in accord with Divine Wisdom wherein is abovementioned for the order within the Church for the perfection of the People of God?

There is only one question. The abovementioned quotes indicate the three pillars of God's Word: Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Papal Magisterium.

Please, if anyone wants to re-formulate, the interpretations of Paul VI and St. Augustine, to the best their conscience permits (not to far out like I could, formulate implies carefulness) concerning Wis 8:1 - please do so. And give credit to a member of the clergy who has a grasp of the world-view. After all St. Catherine of Siena said if a soul were to do what he or she ought, the soul would set the world ablaze.
