Third Sunday of Lent - Cleansing the Temple

Third Sunday of Lent
Gospel John 2:13-25
March 8, 2015

About five years ago I gave up anger for Lent.  At the time I was having trouble with my anger.  Actually I was having trouble with my reaction to anger, the resentment that had consumed me because I had allowed my anger to turn to sin.

 I didn’t think that God was going to be able to release me from this anger.  Boy did I find out differently.  God not only took my anger from me during that Lenten journey, He turned my anger into love.  I was amazed.  I know I should not have been, but I was.

 Today’s Gospel this third Sunday of Lent reminds me of that time and how thankful I am to God that He is so wise, merciful and so all-knowing.  Listen to Father Kabuki’s reflection on today’s Gospel message and learn the difference between righteous anger  (that which Jesus exhibited in the Gospel) and sinful anger.
