A Lenten retreat: Justice and forgiveness

“Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (John 8:7).

It is easy for us as onlookers to condemn the crowd as unfair accusers of the woman caught in adultery, to feel indignant toward them, and to feel that justice was served when Jesus made a simple request of the woman’s accusers. That is if we stand in Jesus’ shoes.

Let us change positions for a moment and put ourselves where we most often stand, that is, in the place of the woman’s accusers.

Each week during Lent, features a written reflection on the coming Sunday’s Gospel. Each one will try to offer some insight into what God’s Word might mean for our Lenten journey today. New reflections will be posted on Wednesdays.

On the same page with the written reflections, you’ll find Lenten audio talks preached by Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province. This week’s topic is "Prayer."

We hope these offerings will help you on your spiritual walk through Lent and lead you to a joyful Easter. May Our Mother of Perpetual Help be with us along the way.
