Gospel: Matthew 21:12-16

Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves. He said to them, ‘It is written, “My house shall be called a house of prayer,” but you are making it a den of robbers.’ The blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He cured them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the amazing things that He did, and heard the children crying out in the temple, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David,’ they became angry and said to Him, ‘Do you hear what these are saying?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Yes; have you never read, “Out of the mouths of infants and nursing babies you have prepared praise for yourself?

Amen.
