From the homily
Fr. David was the celebrant at the 10 am mass today. The part of the homily I remember best was the point that while Our Lord in the Gospel had to stress that one cannot be defiled by what goes into our bodies, but what comes out of our hearts, today many of us are under the even worse ( I believe he used the word 'diabolical' ) delusion that nothing defiles us. He then proceeded to go through the list given in the Gospel, and our current sugarcoatings for them. "Unchastity is a 'lifestyle'. Greed is ' planning for retirement'. Murder is 'reproductive freedom' and 'compassion for the terminally ill.' The most deadly sins of all, pride and arrogance, hide under the label 'self-esteem'. "
