Holy Week 2016 – #3   Leave a comment


Jesus, in a story that is in all four Gospels, entered the temple in Jerusalem, confronted “business as usual”, and Mark’s Gospel reports that he said:

“Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer

for all the nations’?”

Mark 11:17 (RSV)

“Our prayers remain empty if we do not inhabit them;

if we do not mirror their desires

through the people that we are and seek to become.”

Seasons of the Spirit, 2009
