Welcome to the Unofficial Catholic Exegesis.  The is a daily show Monday through Friday sometime between 1:00PM -   3:00 PM.  The purpose of the show is to provide a Catholic Voice on Blog Talk Radio.

Today's reading asks a very fundamental question: What is more important to our spirit and to our faith?  The laws and rules which are created by man, or the intention behind those actions which are not governed by law.  Of course it is against the law to steal, but there is no law to give.  Of course it is against the law to trespass on to another person's property, but there is no law to allow those within our home.

Today, the scripture concerns those actions which are not written down and punishable but which are far more important than those laws written and punishable.
