Responsorial Psalm
The Responsorial Psalm for this weekend is:
(Psalm 46)
The waters of the river gladden
the city of God,
the holy dwelling of the Most High.
St. Michael Church, Windham, OH
The Temple and Worship
In all of today’s readings, the temple is prominently mentioned.
Ezekiel speaks of streams of living water flowing out from the
temple, watering the desert, bringing life to all living things,
offering fresh healing to God’s people. Paul reminds the
Corinthians that their faith rests upon the firmest of foundations,
Christ himself. More than that, Paul reveals that those who
follow Christ are themselves temples, temples of the Holy Spirit;
that is, God dwells not only with them, but in them. For the Jews
of Jesus’ time, the temple had come to be identified with the
presence of God and the only place where authentic worship of
God took place. Jesus had a different perception. Jesus identified himself not with the temple, but as the temple. In so doing,
Jesus indicated a dramatic shift in what it means to worship
God, to be in God’s presence. No longer was a place to be the
focus of prayer. Instead, a person, the person of Jesus Christ,
becomes the center of our worship. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
