Gospel: Mark 7:1-13
"But their hearts are far from me." (cf. Mk 7:6)
In today's Gospel, Jesus was asked why His disciples are not following the tradition of washing hands first before meals. Traditions aren't wrong but sometimes it is in being superficial that halts us in following Jesus thus making our hearts far from Him. Let us ask Mother Mary to teach us the way on how could we follow Jesus so our hearts won't be far away from Him.
