                                            March 4, 2018 • 3rd Sunday of Lent
Sunday Readings: Exodus 20:1–17; 1 Corinthians 1:22–25; John 2:13–25
             For Catechists and Teachers
Scripture Background
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus clears the Temple of buyers and sellers. He reminds the people that his Father’s house is a place to pray. He is angry that they are making a marketplace out of a sacred place. Jesus chases them all out, saying that the Temple is the house of God, not a marketplace.
Connecting Scripture and Doctrine
Promise explores children’s experiences of being angry with friends and family members and having to ask for or give forgiveness. By respecting each other, we respect the presence of God in each of us. We serve God’s kingdom by living as Jesus did.
“Sin wounds the loving relationship that God has initiated with his creatures. It is an offense against God that turns the human heart away from his love. It wounds human nature and injures human solidarity” (NDC, 42D).
Sharing the Lesson with Families
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus reminds the buyers and sellers in the Temple that his Father’s house is a place of prayer. Encourage parents to work this week at finding
a special, even if brief, time for family prayer. Suggest that they pray meal prayers together, then invite family members to name people for whom they wish to pray. Or they may make bedtime or morning a time of saying a prayer together as a family.
