“So the Pharisees and scribes questioned him, ‘Why do your disciples not follow the tradition of the elders but instead eat a meal with unclean hands?’”
Why might the Pharisees have asked this question? . . . because they were sincerely wanting to know the reason? Or because they were trying to trip up Jesus?
How are you beginning to find certain practices meaningful, instead of just following the letter of the law?
Prayerfully acknowledge your motivation for doing what you do.
Heritage word—“The masterpiece of Justice is Peace.”
(Mother Mary Chrysostom, 2ndSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
