Dedication of St. John Lateran Basilica in Rome
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" (John 2: 13-16).
Our parish church or school chapel is a sacred place. It is God’s house. How do I behave in Church? Do I genuflect when entering and leaving to show God that I love and adore him?
Jesus, remind me to always make a good genuflection when I enter a church because you are present in the Eucharist.
