“Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile. ‘From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.’”
Do these words from Jesus surprise you?
Do you have a tendency to act out of any of those areas of sinfulness listed by Jesus?
What will you do today to monitor your life?
Heritage word—“Let us offer the ‘ashes of our humanness’ so that in us the ‘Light of the World’ can burn brightly for all people wandering in the land of darkness.”
(Sister Constance Marie, 10thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
