Friends of the Rosary:

This Monday, March 18th we begin the fifth and final full week of Lent. Day after day, the liturgical readings tell of the lowering storm clouds that will break open next week.

And today’s main reading in the Gospel (John 8:1-11) features the woman caught in adultery. The scribes and Pharisees accuse and bring her to Jesus.

Our Lord responds: “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

And tells the woman: “Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.”

In this biblical passage, we see divine mercy in action.

It’s the fruit of forgiveness offered and accepted. God loves sinners and rejects sin — because sin destroys and poisons our eternal souls.

Every sin is adultery to God — and is pardonable by Christ.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
