Come, Lord! Show us the path to freedom

 3rd Sunday of Lent B, March 3, 2024

The Ten Commandments may not be too popular today. We know it, we see it, we hear it: freedom is in fashion, with the only meaning being doing whatever we want. But, in the first reading, Jesus says: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. ” God liberated His people from slavery. He will also free us from all other chains of bondage and ensure our freedom. He loves us and reveals His laws to us as an invitation to love him more than anything. Thank you Jesus for having loved us so.

Psalm 18 is one of the most beautiful psalms, the psalm of trust. “Lord, you have the words of everlasting life.” God wants what is best for us. Thank you Jesus for having loved us so.

The Gospel for this Sunday shows us that God wants to make things right. “Stop turning my Father’s house into a market.” One day, Paul wrote to the Corinthians: “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple? ” Consequently, it is important to ensure that this temple is free from all encumberment. The period of Lent is offered to us to allow Christ to enter our hearts and free us from what prevents our communion with Him. God wants to live in our hearts. Let us give Him the chance to cleanse us and make us in His image.

This temple is a clear sign of the presence of God. From now on, the presence of God is not in a stone construction but in the hearts of humanity, in the Body of the Resurrected.

“Let us take the road to our hearts where Jesus awaits us in righteousness. He comes as a builder to make a temple to his specifications, because, in our hearts, everything begins again. Let us take the path that leads us to Him. “
