Tuesday Fifth Week Ordinary Time

1 Corinthians 6:19-20: Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
Heavenly Father, we admit to you that we sometimes lose sight of how precious our body is to you. With aging and the other challenges that daily reminds us that our body is a vessel of decay, we find it hard to believe that we can glorify you with it. Please, through your Holy Spirit, quicken in us a deeper respect and appreciation of your presence in us. In the name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 7:1-13)
Jesus gave an instance of how Pharisees with some scribes who gathered around Him use of ritual tradition excused them from fulfilling the commandment to honor one's parents. If somebody wanted to avoid the duty of financially only if their parents in old age or sickness they could say that their money or goods were an offering "given over to God" and thus excused from any claim of charity or duty to facilitate others. They broke God's law to fulfill a law of their own creation. Jesus makes clear that they void God's command because they permitted their hearts and minds to be clouded by their own ideas of religion. Jesus accused them specially two things. First is hypocrisy. Like actors, who acts, they appear to obey God's word in their external practice while they inwardly evil desire and objectives. Secondly, Jesus accused them of abandons God's word by replaced their own arguments and clever interpretations for what God requires. They listened to intellectual arguments rather than to God's word. Do we approach Jesus with a clean heart and mind? Let us the Lord to cleanse and renew us with His Holy Spirit.
