Love and the Cleansing

Someone posted this quote by Bishop Sheen on Facebook today - "Christian love bears evil but it does not tolerate it. It does penance for the sins of others, but it is not broadminded about sin. Real love involves real hatred: whoever has lost the power of moral indignation and the urge to drive the sellers from the temples has also lost a living, fervent love of truth."

The sellers do have a way of taking over our temples.   May we continue to have the love to chase them out, even if such a chasing occasionally involves a tactical retreat.
