Hypocrisy can lead to blindness. When we live a life of contradiction, we lose sight of the truth. Only the truth can set us free.

Hypocrites say one thing and do another. They can see neither good nor evil in the end. Their blindness can even be willful.

O Holy Spirit, purify my mind and heart with love. May any contradiction and hypocrisy in my words and deeds be burned away by the gift of being in your holy presence.
