THIS WEEK THE SANCTUARY LAMP BURNS IN MEMORY OF ROSALIO CHAVEZ, JR.
I am choosing to reflect on Gospel for Year B and not the RCIA Gospel. Jesus cleanses the temple because of his zeal for his Father’s house. After his resurrection we read that, the disciples remembered that he said he would be raised up in three days and recalled the words of Scripture, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” (Psalm 69:9) The Gospel continues, “They came to believe the Scripture and the words Jesus had spoken.”
It is good for us to be aware that the disciples knew what we call the Old Testament. For them that was the Scripture. When they came to believe the Scripture means that they came to understand that the Scripture explained to them something about Jesus. The words of Jesus confirmed that what the Scripture said was about him. The conclusion of this brief reflection is that the entire Bible, Old Testament and New Testament are about Jesus.
This Gospel story helps me understand and control my own angry feelings. It is a story I suggest to those who are seeking help in controlling their angry feelings. Strong feelings in themselves are neither good nor bad, just strong feelings. Jesus’ strong feelings were zeal for the temple, the house of his Father. He took the occasion to teach the meaning of his death. “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”
Perhaps you will find this reflection suitable for one of your Lenten prayers.
Estoy eligiendo a reflexionar sobre el Evangelio para el Año B y no el RICA Evangelio. Jesús limpia el templo debido a su celo por la casa de su Padre. Después de su resurrección, leemos que los discípulos se acordaron de que él dijo que iba a ser levantado en tres días y recordó las palabras de la Escritura, “El celo de tu casa me consume.” (Salmo 69:9) El Evangelio continúa: “Ellos vinieron a creer en la Escritura y las palabras que Jesús había hablado.”
Es Bueno para nosotros ser conscientes de que los discípulos sabían lo que llamamos el Antiguo Testamento. Para ellos esa era la Escritura. Cuando llegaron a creer la Escritura, significa que llegaron a entender que la Escritura les explicó algo acerca de Jesús. Las palabras de Jesús confirmaron que lo que la Escritura dijo se trataba de Jesús. La conclusión de esta breve reflexión es que toda la Biblia, Antiguo Testamento y el Nuevo Testamento son acerca de Jesús.
Este relato evangélico me ayuda a entender y controlar mis propios sentimientos de ira. Es una historia que sugiero a los que buscan ayuda para controlar sus sentimientos de ira. Fuertes sentimientos en sí mismos no son ni buenos ni malos, sólo son sentimientos fuertes. Fuertes sentimientos de Jesús eran celo por el templo, la casa de su Padre. Se aprovechó la ocasión para enseñar el significado de su muerte. “Destruid este templo y en tres días lo levantaré.”
Tal vez ustedes encontrarán esta reflexión adecuado para una de sus oraciones de Cuaresma.

ASSUMPTION SEMINARY will close its centennial celebration and start its next centennial celebration on October 2, 2015. Many of the first gifts to the seminary were “memorial burses” which were meaningful gifts for the first hundred years. Similar gifts are needed as Assumption Seminary embarks on its second century and strives to provide quality formation for today’s spiritual fathers. One simple way to make a planned gift: a bequest in your will or living trust. On the tables in the Church you will fine cards which you can fill out and send to Assumption Seminary for more information on how to help them out.
