2 Maccabees 3: 12 (The High Priest) added that it was utterly unthinkable to defraud those who had placed their trust in the sanctity of the Place and in the sacred inviolability of a temple venerated all over the world.
“My child, what was once unthinkable is now commonplace. The temple of the Most High is violated all over the world. Not just the physical church, but that sacred temple of the Holy Spirit, the human body. What God has entrusted to man, his greatest treasure – that is, the very image of himself that is stamped upon the human person – this great treasure has been plundered and sold for a pittance. The slaves of sin trade in their very selves for counterfeit selves, preferring the lie to the fullness of truth. My child, place your trust in my mercy. Pray for souls. Lead them back to the holy temple that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
My Lord have mercy on us all! I trust in you, Jesus, Beloved, to lead all souls tot he fullness of joy in your presence through the prayers of Mary Immaculate. Amen.
