Fr Bob Writes:
In the temple in Jerusalem at Jesus' time,
the largest area was called the Court of
the Gentiles. It was open to anyone,
Jew and non-Jew alike. The successive
areas became more restrictive with the
Court of Women (for Jews only), the
Court of Israel (for Jewish men only),
the Sanctuary (for priests only) and the
Holy of Holies (into which only the high
priest entered and then just once a year).
The animals and moneychangers were
located in the Court of the Gentiles. The
area had been intended as a space where
people could meet to pray or discuss
scriptural interpretation with rabbis. It
was in this space that Jesus would teach
during the week prior to his death. Jesus
desired to clear the area of the animals
and the noise so as to return the space to
its intended use.
Jesus clears the temple area to restore it
to its true purpose. Paul writes to the
Corinthians: "Do you not know that you
are the temple of God and that the Holy
Spirit dwells in you? (1 Cor 3:16), and
again, "We are the temple of the living
God" (2 Cor 6:16). We are the sanctuary
where Jesus has chosen to reside. As
Jesus comes into this temple, will he find
it truly oriented to the purpose for which
God created you and me? Will he find
cause to do some clearing and cleaning?
Jesus, cleanse this temple and restore it
to the purpose for which you have
created it.

green form found in the bookshelf at the entrance of the church, and place it in the collection basket. Thanks!
