Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Jesus’ Divine Power” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus expelled the money changers who were cheating the worshippers in the Temple; which was meant solely for the worship of God. Ponder on, “Do we ‘show our irreverence to God, when we attend Mass, by our inappropriate dressing, behaviour and also worshiping with a heart that has not reconciled with God?”
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.
