San Bernardino Bishop Gerald Barnes explores the meaning of the Temple for Christians.
Third Sunday of Lent, Year B
San Bernardino Bishop Gerald R. Barnes invites us on this Third Sunday of Lent to deepen our commitment to the gospel. His 10-minute homily helps us to understand the meaning of Jesus’ anger in the Temple. Jesus, explains Bishop Barnes, is the new Temple of the Lord. In the question-and-answer segment Bishop Barnes talks about how each of us can honor the Lord’s presence in our lives. This week’s musical selection is “What Have We Done for the Poor Ones” by GIA Artist Lori True. You can listen separately to that song, to the musical setting of the Lord’s Prayer or to Bishop Barnes’s blessing by following the links below. But first, take a break and listen to the whole show.
