Gospel text (Mt 23:23-26): Jesus said: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity." Jesus said: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. But these you should have done, without neglecting the others. Blind guides, who strain out the gnat and swallow the camel! “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You cleanse the outside of cup and dish, but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may be clean.”

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 your way!
