The Temple of God is holy....



"The temple of God is holy, and you are that temple."
(A quote from 1 Corinthians 3:16...Taken from a sermon by Saint Caesarius of Arles)

Saint Caesarius also writes, "Whenever we come to church, we must prepare our hearts to be as beautiful as we expect this church to be.  Do you wish to find this basilica immaculately clean?  Then do not soil your soul with the filth of sins.  Do you wish this basilica to be full of light?  God too wishes that your soul be not in darkness, but that the light of good works shine in us, so that he who dwells in the heavens will be glorified.  Just as you enter this church building, so God wishes to enter into your soul, for he promised:  I shall live in them, and I shall walk the corridors of their hearts.

Beautiful sharing, Lindy.

I once complained to Jesus about a certain tabernacle which was always dusty.

Very gently, I sensed that the Lord was telling me He didn't care nearly so much about the dust on that tabernacle as He did about the "dust" on my soul.

Thanks for the reminder...

Blessings,
Patricia
