I refer, of course, to Portsmouth.
In the newsletter which goes out over the Bishop's signature, appears the following:
"In next Sunday's Gospel (John 2:13-25) we hear how by cleansing the Jerusalem Temple of moneylenders, Jesus establishes his authority and identity as the Son of God: the one who, through the Incarnation, has replaced and superseded the Jerusalem Temple as the ultimate meeting-place of Heaven and Earth, ... ... the saving mystery by which we are all raised to the eternal life with God which Jesus, the new Temple, has come to give us. ... ..."
I trust readers will be in no doubt why I so heartily applaud this simple explanation of a Truth so often repudiated ...
