St. John links the ministry of Jesus to the celebration of important Jewish feasts. In doing so, he helps us see that the Body of Jesus is the new and eternal Temple of God.

The Church is the Body of Christ. Do I contribute to the building up of the real presence of Jesus in the lives of those whom I meet each day?

Dear Jesus, You are God’s holy Temple. May I seek to worship God by seeking You out among the needy today. When I encounter You, may I reverence You in others.
