To
those who sold doves he said, "Take these
out of here, and stop making my Father's
house a marketplace." His disciples recalled the
words of Scripture, Zeal for your house will consume
me. - Jn 2:16-17

women to win them. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
For several weeks, we have considered penance as a
sacrament of forgiveness, and yet there are two other sacraments in this category. The first, of course, is the
Eucharist itself. The other is the sacrament of the sick,
long associated with penance.
The Letter of James sets out the deep tradition for
caring for the sick: sending for the priests, who will pray
and lay their hands on the sick ones, anointing them with
oil, and giving them forgiveness. Long before other rites of
penance developed, the sacrament of the sick was therefore a profound experience of forgiveness. Jesus often
healed the sick, nearly always as a visible sign of forgiveness of sin. The tradition didn’t unfold smoothly, however, and within a few centuries the oil of the sick was
taken home to be applied by caregivers as a salve, or even
to be drunk as a medicine. As early as the second century,
bishops were therefore urging that priests should be the
ones to visit those separated by illness from the Sunday
assembly. Thus the practice of consigning the Eucharist
and the oil of the sick to the non-ordained faithful to
bring home was relatively short-lived.

Heavenly Father, on this day, help us remember those who gave of themselves to
keep us safe and secure. Enkindle in our
consciences a desire to serve those who
served their country selflessly. Give us the
grace to aid those who have given aid and
protection to us and others both here and
overseas. Let us never forget the causes for
which they fought or the bravery they
showed on the battlefield. May we be always be mindful of those who paid the
price for our freedom, just as your Son gave
his life to free us from the bondage of sin.
Amen.
