The Gospels the past couple of Sundays seem to me to have a theme about forgiveness, of letting go of judgment and resentment. Not a bad thing for any time of the year, even more appropriate to hear during Lent. I wonder what our world would be like if during Lent, all Christians would fast from judging others?
Today’s Gospel was about the woman caught in adultery. Every time I read that passage my mind seems to go to the question of why was it just the woman who was condemned to death by stoning? Being a celibate religious all these years doesn’t mean that I fail to understand that adultery is not a solitary sin…it takes two!
On another note, I’m still up to my eyeballs trying to keep up with the 3 new courses I’m teaching. There are several more weeks left, and I find myself at what feels like the limits of my endurance. So please bear with the less frequent new entries as we move through these last weeks of Lent and the first week of Easter.
