DG BookGospel: Mk 7:14–23
Jesus then called the people to him again and said to them, “Listen to me, all of you, and try to understand. Nothing that
enters a person from the outside can make that person unclean. It is what comes from within that makes a person unclean. Let
everyone who has ears listen.” When Jesus got home and was away from the crowd, his disciples asked him about


this saying, and he replied, “So even you are dull? Do you not see that whatever comes from outside cannot make a person
unclean, since it enters not the heart but the stomach, and is finally passed out?” Thus Jesus declared that all foods are
clean. And he went on, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him for evil designs come out of the heart: Theft, murder,
adultery, jealousy, greed, maliciousness, deceit, indecency, slander, pride and folly. All these evil things come from within and
make a person unclean.”

 

Reflection:

Again Jesus reminds His hearers that the heart is where the good and the
bad comes. So instead of being preoccupied with the things of the outside, one
must be looking inward and be concerned with what’s inside the heart. Perhaps
because external things are easy to handle that we focus our energy in trying
to manage them. But the things of the heart are hard to control. We battle with
ourselves. And each time we take up arms, we see a bit of ourselves and our
self-illusion is shattered. In the end, it is easier to be angry with others than with
ourselves.
