Third Sunday of Lent



Reading 1EX 20:1-3, 7-8, 12-17

In those days, God delivered all these commandments:
"I, the LORD am your God, 
who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery.
You shall not have other gods besides me.

"You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain.
For the LORD will not leave unpunished 
the one who takes his name in vain.

"Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
Honor your father and your mother, 
that you may have a long life in the land 
which the Lord, your God, is giving you.
You shall not kill.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor's house.
You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, 
nor his male or female slave, nor his ox or ass, 
nor anything else that belongs to him."

 

Responsorial PsalmPS 19:8, 9, 10, 11.

R. Eternal Living Lord  gave us the holy Law,
     To use the body as temple of God. 

The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul;
The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.
R. Eternal Living Lord  gave us the holy Law,
     To use the body as temple of God. 

The precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the command of the LORD is clear,
enlightening the eye.
R. Eternal Living Lord  gave us the holy Law,
     To use the body as temple of God. 

The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true,
all of them just.
R. Eternal Living Lord  gave us the holy Law,
     To use the body as temple of God. 

They are more precious than gold,
than a heap of purest gold;
sweeter also than syrup
or honey from the comb.
R. Eternal Living Lord  gave us the holy Law,
     To use the body as temple of God. 



Reading 2 1 COR 1:22-25

Brothers and sisters:
Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 
but we proclaim Christ crucified, 
a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 
but to those who are called, Jews and Greeks alike, 
Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, 
and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.


Verse Before The GospelJN 3:16

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.

GospelJN 2:13-25

Since the Passover of the Jews was near,
Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
He found in the temple area those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, 
as well as the money changers seated there.
He made a whip out of cords
and drove them all out of the temple area, with the sheep and oxen, 
and spilled the coins of the money changers
and overturned their tables, 
and to those who sold doves he said,
"Take these out of here, 
and stop making my Father's house a marketplace."
His disciples recalled the words of Scripture, 
Zeal for your house will consume me.
At this the Jews answered and said to him,
"What sign can you show us for doing this?"
Jesus answered and said to them, 
"Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up."
The Jews said, 
"This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, 
and you will raise it up in three days?"
But he was speaking about the temple of his body.
Therefore, when he was raised from the dead, 
his disciples remembered that he had said this, 
and they came to believe the Scripture 
and the word Jesus had spoken.

While he was in Jerusalem for the feast of Passover, 
many began to believe in his name 
when they saw the signs he was doing.
But Jesus would not trust himself to them because he knew them all, 
and did not need anyone to testify about human nature.
He himself understood it well.
