Expulsion of merchants from the temple, current precept

On March 4, Pope Francis commented on the Gospel episode of Jesus that threw migrants out of the temple, underlining how Christ said:

“Do not make the house of my Father a market. The Pontiff explains that this teaching is “always relevant, not only for ecclesial communities, but also for individuals, for civil communities and for societies. It is common, in fact, to take advantage of good activities, sometimes rightful ones, to cultivate private interests, if not even illegal ones”.
