From my Lenten reading

If the Lord did not wish those things to be sold in the temple that he did wish to be offered there (for the reason that motives of greed and dishonesty are apt to poison such transactions), consider how much more severe would be his punishment were he to find any occupied there in idle laughter or gossip.

                 -- From Homily 63 of St. Bede the Venerable, Priest
