DG Book

Gospel: John 8:1-11
As for Jesus, he went to the Mount of Olives. At   daybreak   Jesus   appeared   in   the temple again. All the people came to him, and he sat down and began to teach them. Then  the  teachers  of  the  law  and  the Pharisees  brought  in  a  woman  who  had been  caught  in  the  act  of  adultery.  They made   her   stand   in   front   of   everyone. “Master,” they said, “this woman has been caught  in  the  act  of  adultery.  Now  the law of Moses orders that such women be stoned  to  death;  but  you,  what  do  you say?” They said this to test Jesus, in order to have some charge against him.Jesus bent down and  started  writing on the ground with his finger. And as they continued to ask him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let anyone among you who has no sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” And he bent down, again, writing on the ground.As a result of these words, they went away, one by one, starting with the elders, and Jesus was left alone, with the woman standing before him. Then Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She replied, “No one.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go away and don’t sin again.”

Lectio Divina

READ: A woman who was caught committing adultery was brought to Jesus. Isaiah calls the people not to lose heart but to anticipate God‘s promise of redemption. Paul kept his eye on the goal, which is “to gain trust.

”REFLECT: The teacher of the law and the Pharisees were never interested to learn a lesson from Jesus. Their question was simply “to test“ Jesus, so they could have an argument against him. Instead Jesus asked them to scrutinize themselves “ if no one among them has no sin“. In the end, the woman was left alone standing before Jesus. he did not condemn her, but gave her freedom form sin.

PRAY: Ask the Lord to maintain his presence in your heart. You pray and receive Holy Communion regularly and listen to the Word of God.

ACT: Consciously behave like a renewed person who lives in freedom from sin and gives love to others.
