This Sunday we see in the cleansing of the temple that Jesus got really angry. It’s a moment that calls each of us to look at our emotions and passions. What makes you angry?
Do you find yourself getting angry too quickly? Are you filled with road rage? Or perhaps your anger is deeper. Perhaps you feel hurt and hold a strong anger towards someone you loved deeply. I believe Jesus desires to not just love us this Lent, but to allow that love to transform us and break through even our deepest hurt and anger.
I pray today your anger can be, as Ennie talks about, an opportunity to grow in holiness. Let the little crosses of your life be moments of grace. If you are angry about something in the world, do something about it. Don’t just be angry.
