St. Rose of Lima
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You cleanse the outside of cup and dish, but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may be clean” (Matthew 23: 25-26).
In other words, the most important part of the cup to keep clean is the inside, just like us. We need to keep our soul clean, free of sin, weakness and vice. When we sin we get filthy. If you’re filthy you take a shower. The Sacrament of Confession is our spiritual shower.
Thank You, Jesus, for the wonderful gift of the Sacraments.
