Mark 7, 14-23:
“It is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean. For it is from within, from men’s hearts, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these evil things come from within and make a man unclean”.
Today’s gospel continues with the same theme of yesterday.
That is why I invite you to read again the commentary from yesterday.
We say that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
It is also true that what leads us to adopt a specific behavior or to perform certain actions is what we carry in our hearts.
And we also say the effective is the affective.
Take care to fill your heart with everything good.
Fill your interior of everything that brings you to serve more and better, to work more and better for others, to feel more and better with God.
Fill your heart of everything that leads you to act moved by the love and the search for the good of others.
