Clean vs. unclean: Wednesday, February 8th, 2017
Listen to the homily here.
Yesterday, the Pharisees and the scribes were asking Jesus tricky questions…
· “Clean” or “unclean” their hands for food (cups and jugs and kettles and beds)
· Jesus gave His answers to the Pharisees and the scribes through the Old Testament
Today he gave some answers to the disciples:
“Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile."
“From within the man, from his heart, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly.”
