News from Priest in Training (P.I.T.)

When I was a little kid, I would watch a show called The Big Comfy Couch, in which most of the adventures took place on the eponymous sofa. One of my favorite segments of the show was the โ€œTen Second Tidy.โ€ At the end of the show, the characters would clean up the mess they made in ten seconds by comically shoving everything into the couch cushions. Of course, this show influenced how I cleaned as a child. One day, as we were leaving a friendโ€™s house, my mom said I had to clean up my mess really quickly before we left. โ€œTen second tidy?โ€ I said. She nodded, probably thinking I meant that I would clean really fast. When we got back home, my mom received a phone call from my friendโ€™s mom. โ€œWe canโ€™t find our remote control. Do you have any idea where it might be?โ€ She looked at me for a second and replied, โ€œHave you checked your couch cushions?โ€

Even now as an adult, I still do not enjoy cleaning, and much of my โ€œtidyingโ€ probably still resembles shoving everything out of sight into the couch cushions. During this Lent, we are called to do a kind of โ€œspring cleaningโ€ of our souls. But left to ourselves, our cleaning might look more like a โ€œten second tidy,โ€ shoving problems out of sight rather than truly removing them from our lives. So how can we truly clean our souls?

In the Gospel, where Jesus makes a whip and drives all the money changers out of the Temple. What does that have to do with us? John gives us a clue: โ€œBut he was speaking about the temple of his body.โ€ Jesus refers to His body as a Temple, and …
