Wednesday 8 February 2017
Where does evil come from- we ask it so frequently ? Jesus’ answer is very concise :”  it is from within”! Spring cleaning has to be started from within ourselves!
Let us quieten down and examine what is in our hearts !!
With love ,
Father Csaba
translated by dr k.e. 
Then he called the crowd again and said to them, ‘Listen to me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile.’*
When he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about the parable. He said to them, ‘Then do you also fail to understand? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile, since it enters, not the heart but the stomach, and goes out into the sewer?’ (Thus he declared all foods clean.) And he said, ‘It is what comes out of a person that defiles. For it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.’ 
Mark 7, 14-23
