ABOUT SACRED HEART OF JESUS
See bulletin for more information.
In today's Gospel, Jesus denounces the hypocrisy of the Scribes and the Pharisees. He challenges them to look at not what is outside but look at what is inside instead. He knows that it’s easier for us to obey the laws, observe the traditions than changing our heart to love and to forgive. Click HERE to read more.
