“He responded, ‘Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites, as it is written: This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines human precepts. You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition.’”
Consider a tradition in your life or in your family that you treat as valuable?
What value does that tradition uphold?
Ask for the grace to be more aware of your integrity in honoring that tradition?
Heritage word—“. . . have no fear of human sin. Love people even in their sin for that is the semblance of Divine Love and is the highest love on earth.”
(Dostoevsky —quoted by Sr. Constance Marie, 10thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
