5th Sunday of Lent

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on April 2, 1995

Readings: Isaiah 43: 16-21; Philippians 3: 8-14; John 8:1-11

This week’s Gospel is the John’s account of the adulterer.  Fr. Healy invites us to reflect on whether sexual issues are highlighted in our society, perhaps as they were in Jesus’s time, to deflect our attention from other issues. We are reminded that Jesus speaks to us today when he tells the woman, “Nor do I condemn you.  You may go.  But from now on, avoid, the sin.”
