3rd Sunday of Lent
Originally delivered on March 3, 1991
Readings: Exodus 20:1-17 or 20:1-3, 7-8, 12-17; Corinthians 1:22-25; John 2:13-25
In this week’s readings we hear the ten commandments and in the Gospel we hear of Jesus’s anger about the marketplace in the temple. Indeed, we are called to not kill, but to go further and to love those that would be our enemies. There will always be a need for us to have a leap of faith to fully understand God in the depth of our being so that it permeates us and affects how we respond to the world around us.
