Gospel Reflection for the 3rd Sunday of Lent B2012

Marketplace is a quick profit making centre wherein persons, in daily basis, are reduced into commodities. 

Jesus, whose “zeal for the Father’s house consumes Him,” (Jn 2.17) turns the worldly treated people as commodities to God’s living temples, consecrated and made sacred to generate spiritual profits, not for self-gain but for others’ benefit. 

As we are made God’s Temples, God’s dwelling places in this present world, we can not but be exposed to being desecrated, to being humiliated and up to being completely broken.  These should not cause us to despair for they just validate the real and precious value of who we are.  The sharper the world blows the shiner in Him we glow.

May Jesus who makes God dwells in us consume all the worldly within so that others, through us, may worship Him.  Amen.
