DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Gospel of Challenges: In today’s Gospel episode, Jesus drove out the merchants as they were desecrating the Temple; which is meant for the worship of God. The Gospel of Christ always challenges us to become more Christ-like. “Are we willing to accept the challenges and the crosses that come our way?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus went into the Temple and began driving out those who were busy trading, saying to them, ‘According to scripture, my house shall be a house of prayer but you have turned it into a bandits’ den.’
He taught in the Temple every day. The chief priests and the scribes, in company with the leading citizens, tried to do away with him, but they could not find a way to carry this out because the whole people hung on his words.
