“Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, ‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’ She replied, ‘No one, sir.’ Then Jesus said, ‘Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.’”
Notice the eye contact between Jesus and the woman. How must the woman have felt?
Ponder what’s going on here and allow it to stir up your response to Jesus.
What do you carry away from this encounter?
Heritage word—“The gaping wound in each of us, the longing for Infinite Love, can only be healed with our cooperation. Jesus is a most respectful, patient Lover.”
(Sister Constance Marie, 10th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
