Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
March 22 , 2021 – Monday
Gospel: John 8:1-11
“Neither do I condemn you. Go and do not sin again.”
In the first reading of today (Dn 13:1-9, 15-17, 19-30, 33-62 or 13:41c-62), we see how the Lord saved the innocent and just. This is to show, even when people will mistreat us, our peace and hope is in God’s justice. How about the sinner? Where will we find our peace and hope? In the gospel, it is clearly shown. We are all sinners (not a single one of us can ever cast that stone) but we can always find our peace and hope that we have a God who does not come to condemn us but to save us. He sets us free from that sin and encourages us to be better, to sin no more.
As we approach holy week, may we more and more approach it with a contrite heart and a sincere desire to be better.
