'The flesh though dressed in silk'... This is my only comment when I see you waver before the temptation that hides its impurity under pretexts of art, of science..., of charity!
This is my only comment set in the words of an old proverb: 'The flesh is flesh though dressed in silk.'
- St. Josemaria Escriva (Opus Dei Founder)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to: Mk 6:1-6
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.
