When we grow anxious and suspicious, we need to ask ourselves. Are we right before God our Father? Why are we restless? Why are we feeling empty and unfulfilled? Are we guilty of sin? Try as we might to move on and ignore it, the uneasiness still follows.  We need to rebuild the temple within us, so that we can reconciled fully with God our Father.

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. It is through Him we are cleansed and made pure.  Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation our Holy temples are rebuilt. So that we can receive Him into our tabernacles through the Holy Eucharist.  Glory and Praise to our Lord and God!

For then we can sing, God is dwelling in my heart, He and I are one….. Amen

First reading
Haggai 1:1-8

In the second year of King Darius, on the first day of the sixth month, the word of the Lord was addressed through the prophet Haggai to Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, high commissioner of Judah, and to Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, as follows, ‘The Lord of Hosts says this, “This people says: The time has not yet come to rebuild the Temple of the Lord. (And the word of the Lord was addressed through the prophet Haggai, as follows:) Is this a time for you to live in your panelled houses, when this House lies in ruins? So now, the Lord of Hosts says this: Reflect carefully how things have gone for you. You have sown much and harvested little; you eat but never have enough, drink but never have your fill, put on clothes but do not feel warm. The wage earner gets his wages only to put them in a purse riddled with holes. So go to the hill country, fetch wood, and rebuild the House: I shall then take pleasure in it, and be glorified there, says the Lord.”’

Gospel
Luke 9:7-9

Herod the tetrarch had heard about all that was being done by Jesus; and he was puzzled, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead, others that Elijah had reappeared, still others that one of the ancient prophets had come back to life. But Herod said, ‘John? I beheaded him. So who is this I hear such reports about?’ And he was anxious to see Jesus.
