Third Sunday of Lent

Readings of the day: RB 27 The Abbess’s Care for the ExcommunicatedMass: Ex 20:1-17; Resp Ps 19; 1 Co 1:22-25; Jn 2:13-25For Year A: Ex 17:3-7; Resp Ps 95; Rm 5:1-2, 5-8; Jn 4:5-42

For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom,and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
O the magnitude of St Paul’s words above. Why would we even consider having others gods? Yet we do. Just what and who are the gods we bow down before and worship? Reflecting on Jesus cleansing the temple, we can ask Jesus to cleanse the temple of our hearts from idols and everything that hinders us from receiving his love and mercy and extending love and mercy to all those we meet.
