FAITH BOOK

THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT (B) March 7, 2021

Exodus 20: 1-17; Psalm 19; I Cor. 1: 22-25; John 2: 13-25

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus answered and said to them,
“Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”

 

Reflection:

 

During Lent we are invited to fasting, prayer and almsgiving. We don’t perform these works to earn God’s pleasure, or admittance into God’s presence. We already have that through what Jesus has done for us. Rather, our Lenten practices help us see and respond to those too hungry to fast; too scattered to pray and too poor to give alms.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Do my Lenten observances make me more sensitive to those in need?

  • Who are they and how shall I respond to them?
