Lent, 5th Sunday (C) The Gospel of the woman caught in adultery is remarkably similar to the parable of the prodigal son. The woman is surrounded by accusers. Jesus doesn't speak. Finally he says just one sentence that totally unmasks their hypocrisy. One by one, the voices become silent.
The women is left face to face with Jesus -- the sinful one with the sinless one. She expects condemnation. Instead Jesus offers her new life.
St. Paul himself experienced new life in a relationship with Christ. Do you find yourself surrounded by hostile and accusing voices? Turn to Jesus. Let him part the waters and lead you to freedom.
