“He summoned the crowd again and said to them, “hear me, all of you, and understand. Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person . . .”
Imagine a person filtering what she/he allows into the heart.
What filters can you use in –prayer? –discretionary reading? –TV viewing?
–Scripture reading? –good choice of friends and entertainment?
Determine which filters you will use to keep yourself growing into the person God desires you to be.
Heritage word—“Oh that each one of us may manifest in her/his daily life the unfailing sign of the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit—Joy in God.”
(Mother Mary Chrysostom, 2ndSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
