Third Sunday in Lent
God of passion and power, your Son drove the moneychangers out of the Temple:
cleanse us of our arrogance and recreate in us a dwelling for your holiness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
Reading: 1 Corinthians 1: 18-25
GOSPEL according to John 2: 13-22
Commission and Blessing:
Go now, with God’s foolishness and weakness
as your only wisdom and strength.
Proclaim Christ crucified,
and seek riches only in the love of God’s Word
and in zeal for God’s house.
The blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, be among us, and remain with us always. Amen
Go in peace to love and serve the Lord. In the name of Christ. Amen
