Liturgical day: Tuesday 21st in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Mt 23,23-26): Jesus said, «Woe to you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You do not forget the mint, anise and cumin seeds when you pay the tenth of everything, but then you forget what is most fundamental in the Law: justice, mercy and faith. Jesus said, «Woe to you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You do not forget the mint, anise and cumin seeds when you pay the tenth of everything, but then you forget what is most fundamental in the Law: justice, mercy and faith. These you must practice, without neglecting the others. Blind guides! You strain out a mosquito, but swallow a camel. Woe to you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You fill the plate and the cup with theft and violence, and then pronounce a blessing over them. Blind Pharisee! Purify the inside first, then the outside too will be purified».

Today we continue listening to the complaints of Jesus Christ because the Scribes and Pharisees were making souls suffer. Many rules and little understanding with people! Lots of things and little heart! For this reason, the heart of Jesus "bursts".

-Lord, I don't want to be blind, don't let me go my way, making up religion to my liking. Jesus, take me on your way!
