FAITH BOOK
3RD SUNDAY OF LENT
(B) March 3, 2024

Exodus 20: 1-17-17; 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 found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep and doves, as well as money changers seated there.
He made a whip out of cords and drove them all out of the temple area...,
To those who sold doves he said, “Take those out of here, and stop making my Father’s house a marketplace.”

 

Reflection:


Jesus reveals the righteous anger God feels when what is good and intended to help people gets infiltrated by human greed.  While mercy is always available to those who seek it, still we cannot forget Jesus’ indignation when he meets injustice and any restrictions on those seeking God.

               
So, we ask ourselves:

  • Is there a welcome atmosphere at my parish church as people enter the building?

  • Do I go out of my way to introduce myself to people at church and welcome them if they are visitors?
