Happy Fall, everyone! When I first read today’s Gospel reading, I was kind of shocked to hear how sternly and clearly Jesus speaks. I feel like usually, he is much more gentle and subtle with his words. I think this is a good reminder that he is still human. He still got angry and frustrated, and just wanted to tell it like it is. I think that this is a fantastic representation because it shows to all of us how important this was. This was not a gray area that Jesus was talking about. He felt strongly enough to get emotional when he was talking about it. He didn’t sugarcoat it. To me, it is easy to sometimes hide what you really feel in order to avoid offending someone or to be politically correct.
