Almighty Father, I am grateful for your Son, who’s every word and every action revealed to us the truth of who you are. Help us, the Church, to understand the profound dignity of our own identity, the Bride of Christ. Help us, in the face of many temptations, to maintain our purity and to remember our identity until Christ comes to take us home. In the name of Christ, the Bridegroom, Amen.
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers. Matthew 21:12-13 ESV
