  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 14:22-36)
Only God can change our hearts and create them spotless and whole through the power of the Holy Spirit. Similar to a physician who probes the wound before treating it, God through his Word and Spirit before brings to light our wicked condition that we may distinguish sin for what it is and call upon God's compassion and pardon. The Lord is every ready to alter and purify our hearts through his Holy Spirit who dwells inside us. His authority and grace enables us to choose what is good and to refuse what is evil. Do we believe in the power of God's love to alter and transform our heart? Which is more important to God - clean hands or a spotless mind and heart? The Scribes and Pharisees blamed Jesus' disciples of breaking their custom traditions. They were concerned with avoiding ritual ruination, some no hesitation out of fear of God, and others out of fear of pleasing other person. Jesus points his listeners to the source of true debasement – evil wishes which come from inside a person's innermost being. Sin does not just happen or force itself upon each one of us. It first springs from the personal recesses of everyone thoughts and intentions, from the secret wishes which only the individual soul can envisage.
