Today's Reflection

Jesus expresses his anger for the abuse of the temple. Quoting scriptures he laments, “My house is meant for a house of prayer, but you have turned it into ‘a den of thieves’.” Will Jesus find the Church to be in need of cleansing today? What are the ways the Church has become counter witness to the teachings of the gospel? Church should never be seen by the people – Catholics and non – Catholics – as a place of business. How can we keep the Church as pointer to the higher realities? When our parishes, institutions etc., turn into profit making places Jesus will be as displeased as with those doing business in Jerusalem temple. We need prophets to challenge us when we go astray. Church itself has the mission to be prophetic – standing for the gospel values.
