The doctors of the law and Pharisees practice many details of the law, while they are sorry for what is most important: justice, mercy and faithfulness, qualities related to others and to God and by them is that the life of Christians should be guided. Filial and cordial fidelity to God, who desires us justice and mercy for others. God is father and wants all his sons and daughters to help each other. This is the practice that pleases God. From the outer cleansing of objects, Jesus guides the discourse for interior cleansing, since inside "they are full of theft and greed." Purification must begin within intentions. "Blessed are the pure in the heart, for they shall see God" (Matt 5,8).
