The word of the lord.

>> thanks be too god.

Lord you have the words of everlasting life.

>> lord you have the words of everlasting life.

The law of the lord is perfect.

Refreshing the soul.

The decree of the lord is trustworthy.

Giving wisdom to the simple the precepts of the lord are right, rejoicing the heart.

The command of the lord is clear, and lightening the eye.

Everlasting life.

>> the fear of the lord is pure, enduring forever.

The ordinances of the lord are true, all of them just.

>> lord, you have the words of everlasting life.

>> they are more precious than gold.

Sweeter also than syrup or honey from the coma.

>> lord you have the words of everlasting life.

>> a reading from the first letter of st.

Paul to the sisters, jews demand signs and greeks look for wisdom.

But we proclaim christ crucified.

A stumbling block to jews and foolishness to gentiles.

But to those who are called, jews and greeks alike, christ the power of god anthe wisdom of god.

For the foolishness of god is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of god is stronger than human strength.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be too god.

Praise to you lord jesus christ.

King of endless glory.

>> praise to you lord jesus christ.

King of endless glory.

>> god so loved the world that he gave his only son so that everyone who believes in him, might have eternal life.

>> praise you lord jesus christ.

King of endless glory.

The lord be with you.

>> and with your spirit.

>> a reading from the holy gospel according to john.

>> glory to you oh lord.

>> since the passover of the jews was near, jesus went up to jerusalem.

He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep and doves.

As well as the money changers seated there.

He made a whip out of cords and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen.

And spilled the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables and 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.

At this the jews answered and said to him, what sign can you show us for doing this?

Jesus answered and said to them, destroy this temple and in three days i will raise it up.

The jews said, this temple has been under construction for 46 years.

And you will raise it up in three days?

That he was speaking about the when he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this and they came to believe the scripture and the word jesus had spoken.

While he was in jerusalem for the feast of passover, many began to believe in his name when they saw the signs he was doing.

But jesus would not trust himself to them because he knew them all, and did not need anyone to testify about human nature.

He himself understood it well.

Praise to you, lord jesus christ.

>> friends, as we listen to the gospel, the various images of jesus so many of them are just good shepherd.

The one who is hesitant but obedient, a kind, gentle prophet who astonished the woman at the well.

A tender healer, the compassionate forgive her.

The wonderworker of marvelous from the dead.

All of these are wonderful images that we share of jesus.

But in a way they seem to be a bit in contrast to e image that jesus portrayed in the gospel today.

The gospel story known as the cleansing of the temple is so important that it appears in all four of the gospels.

For jesus made a whip out of cords and drove those money changers and people out of the temple area.

You remember that the temple was everything for the jewish people.

It was the center of economic, political, social and religious life.

Everything revolved around the temple.

And they believed this was god's dwelling.

There heaven and earth literally came together and met in a perfect sense of harmony.

It was attention for many centuries.

Voiced by the prophets in the old testament about the corruption that was happening in the temple area.

As it became more and more caught up in money changers and people needed their goods, to be able to offer sacrifice.

Hand.

And the focal point of the money changers and the buying and the selling really became a distraction.

For people who had a real purpose and goal of the temple.

So to go back to the hebrew scriptures, there waa vision of the messiah.

Who would restore the temple to the dignity to which it is.

The very house of god.

A place of prayer.

And so, it was looking and holding onto that vision that we meet jesus and we encountered that temple.

And out of anger, being able to dispel those were who are again converting it to more of a business transaction.

And so fulfilling as well as being messiah.

Restoring the temple to a place of prayer.

It's interesting that st.

Paul and so many of his writings, we know he lived in jerusalem.

He was very familiar with the rituals and the practices of the temple.

And of the jewish religion.

And he wrote in a couple of different places, but we are reminded that image as we learn the story of jesus in the temple.

Referring even to his own body.

They destroyed the temple and how he built it in three days.

Talking about his body and the whole realm of the crucifixion.

In the resurrection.

But paul would be one who would really say that yr body, our body as disciples of jesus christ, or temples also.

Of the holy spirit.

The very gift of god dwelling of god in the midst of our humanity.

The very president presence of the divine.

A very basic, basic truth of our christianity.

That again within each one of us, keep in mind that we are temples of the holy spirit.

We are of the divine and the human, meet in a very profound way.

And so, that cleansing of the temple of jesus 2000 years ago.

Of the temple of jerusalem, and maybe perhaps also a sense our spirituality of the cleansing of our temple.

Of who each one of us is.

Is a wonderful luncheon practice as we move deeper into this sacred season.

That we are called to do a bit of a cleansing.

Of whatever might really inhibit or be a distraction, or get in the way of us truly embracing the presence of the divine and the human.

And how we live our lives truly is temples of the hilly holy spirit.

And how we are called to respect and treat every other person, no matter who it is, with the dignity and integrity of being temples of the holy spirit.

And so, this kind of an image as we listen to this gospel that we have to be different for jesus but for all of us.

What would happen if you and i and our own prayer life in our own reflection would let jesus loose, maybe with a cleansing kind of grip to help us to cleanse whatever that sinfulness is within us.

And that sinfulness that again really inhibit our total union with god and making god number one in our lives.

And secondly then to really look and to live like the lord calls us to.

And guides us to in many different ways.

And so in the readings today we go back to that first reading.

In the book of exodus, chapter 20.

You get a whole helpful guideline for our examination.

A cleansing of the temple of the holy spirit that each one of us is called to be.

That we more effectively can live in the image and likeness of god.

And just a couple of is a gap examples of the time we have this morning that an examination, and helpfulness of the commandments.

And that we think of the first commandment is the most basic sin, is idolatry.

The most basic sin is when we make other people even, or other things, other ambitions greater than our ambition to be be faithful to god.

And to grow that relationship with our lord.

The second commandment, you know how we speak about god through truly shapes how we think and behave.

And taking the lord's name in vain.

Probably has something also to do and is connected with the way we act.

In a sense also that kind of almost idolatry sometimes, or a lack of recognition and respect who god is.

Keep holy the sabbath sabbath.

Number three, it's so relevant in our society today.

As we are staffed and steeped in secularism and relativism.

And so many people just saying oh, i don't need the mass.

I don't need church.

I don't need the sacraments.

That i am powerful and i can decide everything.

I don't even need the 10 commandments.

I can decide what's right or wrong in my life.

Number four, honor your father and mother.

Reminds of the integrity of family life.

That we are called to restore and rebuild.

Number five, thou shall not kill.

In my life giver?

Am by a taker?

Not just in physical ways but also in verbal kind of ways in our words and our actions.

Number six, thou shall not commit adultery.

Also pretty relevant in our society where we are steeped in such sexual abuse.

And so many different levels, it's rampant today.

We hear about how do we restore the dignity and respect for all of human life and for every person?

Thou shall not steal.

That certainly isn't in the economic realm, but also very personal.

That includes the whole realm of gossip.

How we can steal somebody's reputation.

And the goodness.

And bearing false witness and coveting all of these are ways that we are inved to go back to those commandments.

In our spring cleaning time of this holy season of lent.

Allowing the lord to cleanse the temple of each one of us.

As temples of the holy spirit.

Live the presence of god.

Administer that good wherever we are.

I believe in one god, the father almighty.

Maker of heaven and earth.

Of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one lord jesus christ the only begotten son of god, born of the father before all ages.

Not from god, light from light, true god from true god.

Begotten, not made.

Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven.

And by the holy spirit was incarnate of the virgin mar and became man.

Our say, he was crucified under pontius pilate.

He suffered died and was buried.

And rose again on the third day in accordance with the scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the glory, to judge the living and the dead.

And his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the holy spirit, the lord, the giver of life.

Who proceeds from the father anthe son is adored and glorified.

Who is spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.

I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

And i look forward to the resurrection of the dead and e life of the world to come.

Amen.

Trust in the power and wisdom of god.

We offer our petitions.

At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his passion, he took bread, giving thanks break it broke it and gave it to his disciples saying, take this, all of you and eat it.

For this is my body which will be given up for you.

In a similar way, when supper was and that he took the chalice filled with wine, and once more giving thanks.

He gave it to his disciples, saying, take this all of you and drink from it.

This is the chalice of my blood.

The blood of the new and eternal covenant.

Which will be poured out for you and for many.

For the forgiveness of sins.

Do this in memory of me.

The mystery of faith.

We proclaim your death, o lord.
