Introduction to the Gospel for Lent
The New Temple
Change from one state to the next ísno piece of cake!
We cross our Passover, then seek return!
Bridges passed, we wish we had not burned.
We think "Itís only change for changeís sake"!
Now the former temple is whipped clean;
being purified, prepared for its demise.
In Christís body, the temple will arise
his wounds, the windows; death, the altar screen.
Worship anew, (beyond the edifice),
the living God in every living one of us.
[Year B - Lent 3]
