"Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you
are full of greed and wickedness. You fools!
Did not He who made the outside make the inside also?
But give as alms those things that are within, and behold, everything
is clean for you."
Only the washing of the Word can cleanse us from the inside so we honor God with all that we are. Our giving our 'alms' means we give up our greed and wicked, selfish hearts, out of love for our generous, holy Father. What's on the inside of your cup?
