“ Welcome to St. Patrick Parish in Sturgis in Saskatchewan”

Message from Pastor:

    THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT

 

Each of us longs to know and love God better. Each of us needs the grace of God in our lives. Today’s readings subtly teach us something important about receiving grace and instruction from God. First, he must cleanse us. First, he must make room in our hearts so that he can fill us with his grace. 

 

We notice in today’s first reading that, before God gave the Israelites the Ten Commandments, writing his law on their hearts, he had to get them out of Egypt. He had to free them so that they could be free to love and serve him. In today’s Gospel, Jesus cleanses the temple, making a whip out of cords and overturning tables! But then, he teaches. He prophesies his glorious resurrection.

 

Lent is a time for examining what obstacles to grace and instruction from God may be in our lives. Remember that God respects our free will, and so he doesn’t “force” his grace upon us; we have to cooperate. And so we, in humility, ask ourselves: What do we need to “cleanse” in order to “make room” for God’s abundant grace? What false idols might we rank higher than God, even unconsciously? We know that the temple of [Jesus’] body was destroyed and raised. Therefore, we can trust that the same God who raised Jesus from the dead can also cleanse and breathe new life into our hearts. 

 

To the world, it may seem foolish to place God and his commandments first in our lives, above money, power, and pleasure. But Saint Paul reminds us that to unbelievers, the simple fact that we glorify Christ crucified – Jesus killed as a criminal – is foolish, at best. God, in his infinite wisdom, desired this to be the way humankind was saved, and so we proclaim with joy: Christ has died, Christ is risen, and Christ will come again. 

 

As we approach the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, let our simple prayer be: Jesus, I want to cleanse my heart to make more room for you.
