From our hearts

February 11, 2015 12:22 pm

“But what comes out of the man, that is what defiles him. From within the man, from his heart, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.” (Mk 7: 20-23)

Our beautiful hearts, meeting points with God himself, sources of so many good thoughts and prayers, unfortunately, are also the places where so many evil thoughts can reside. How often our mistaken patterns of interpretation in our inner dialog have their roots in this list. But there is hope; we can always ask: Make my heart like Yours. And we know—Our Lord can do it.

“Your word, O Lord, is truth: consecrate us in the truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
