Throw the Money Changers Out of Your Heart (#449, Lateran Basilica)

Fr. Joel Being Catholic, Homilies

Feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome. The church building serves as a visible reminder that God dwells among His people. Just like the Jewish temple, so the church is a place where heaven and earth are in right relationship and where you can encounter God. We sacrifice (time money, your heart) and God responds by blessing us. The true temple of God is not the church but your heart. Your heart is a place of encounter where we offer sacrifice and God returns blessing. God wants to dwell in your heart. Cast out the clutter to make room for Christ.
