I desire mercy, not sacrifice.

“I say to you, something greater than the temple is here. If you knew what this meant, I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned these innocent men. For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath.” (MT 12: 6-8)

Practicing religion, we need a good guide because sometimes we chose peripherals instead of essence. The essence is always: look for greater love, mercy, understanding, gentleness, respect, a gift of self, etc. Catholicism is about loving as Our Lord loves.

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord, I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
