Dear Friend in the Lord,

Sinners – God’s Mercy”: In today’s Gospel, the scribes and Pharisees brought an adulteress, to seek Jesus’ view, as in the Law of Moses, she deserves to be stoned to death.  Ponder on Jesus’ Words of Wisdom, “Let anyone who has no sin cast the first stone . . . Do we judge and condemn others, and are self-righteous about our own sins?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 8:23-30

Jesus said to the Pharisees: ‘You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I have told you already: You will die in your sins. Yes, if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.’

So they said to him, ‘Who are you?’ Jesus answered: ‘What I have told you from the outset. About you I have much to say and much to judge; but the one who sent me is true, and what I declare to the world I have learnt from him.’ They did not recognise that he was talking to them about the Father.

So Jesus said: ‘When you have lifted up the Son of man, then you will know that I am He and that I do nothing of my own accord. What I say is what the Father has taught me; he who sent me is with me, and has not left me to myself, for I always do what pleases him.’ As he was saying this, many came to believe in him.
