Our Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle B) Can Help Kids to Focus on the Gospel.
Use this Weekly Liturgy Lesson - 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Cycle B) to help teach children that a pure heart avoids sin and stays close to God. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus scolds the Pharisees for their hypocrisy, and He interprets the Law. The leaders accuse the apostles of not following the Jewish tradition of handwashing before consuming food. Jesus rebukes the Pharisees saying that even though they follow the traditions of handwashing, their hearts are still unclean and defiled. They are not living the Commandments. Jesus declares all food clean while He points out that sin comes out of the heart. A pure heart avoids sin and stays close to God.
