Commentary on the Gospel of
God’s temple is holy, and you are this temple. (1 Cor. 3:17) But what happened to the temple? What happened to our bodies? There must be a need for a thorough cleansing of the temple contaminated by the world’s offering of hatred, greed, pride, hunger for power and all other elements creating a culture of death. If we are to be a living sign of God’s temple here on earth, isn’t it but proper that we expose our bodies to that which manifests holiness? Allow yourself to be exposed to His Word, to the Eucharist, to the building of communities in table fellowship and sharing of faith, to works of mercy and compassion. No better way to honor a mother Church but to give justice to our being temples of the Lord!
