Jesus Drove the Robbers from the Temple
From the Navarre Bible commentary,
we know that the “cleansing of the temple
Is a reminder of the respect due
To the House of the Lord. Christian temples
That house the Blessed Eucharist are
Worthy of even greater reverence.”
Halas Hall is a place of work and not
A den of thieves. It is a halfway house
To Heaven. Instead of saying, “Please be
Quiet,” we say, “Please become a mime.”
Thank you for listening. This is better
Than talking to myself. It is great to
Be with you. Have a Hall of Fame day.
