I have friends that dont understand this tradtion we Catholics practice. Am I right to say that this is to help us to remember the things that Jesus did for us? I always thought it was something to help us examine ourselves and to help us think more about the acts of Jesus. I always get the response that it does not matter what “man tradtion” we practice cause Jesus sees out hearts. And these “man traditions” are to look good for other men and to boast in our religion.
Any thoughts? Is my reasoning right? Any help to further explain?
