Twenty Second Sunday of Ordinary Time

“All these evils come from within and they defile.”   (Mark 7, 1-8/14-15/21-23)

 Jesus speaking

 

Evils come from the human heart,

polluting the world,

rising up from our depths,

in a miasma of destruction.

Jesus shakes us out of our complacency.

External empty forms cannot save us.

Hearts pure and clean,

upright and sincere,

these alone make us pleasing to the Father.
