Third Sunday of Lent

March 11, 2012


The point is that God wants you to be fully alive.

In the Gospel, Jesus turns over the tables at the temple.  Like so many things that Jesus says and does, it has a double meaning.  Yes, he is concerned about the physical practices of the temple, but also about each of us as a temple of God.

Our bodies are places where God is to be worshipped and many of us seriously need to have a tables turned upside down.  This is why we reflect on the 10 commandments in the first reading today.

All of these commandments ask us a fundamental question:  What do you Worship?  Who/what do you love?  What do you hold of highest value?   What occupies your thoughts and your time?
