Passion Sunday – 10am Mass

Christ sees with respect

and understanding

Woman-caught-in-adultery

Look at this picture …

What do you see?

What holds your attention?

Today’s Gospel (John 8:1-11) tells us what Jesus saw …

Terror (for the woman)

Shame (her overwhelming reaction)

Hypocrisy (fulminating in the crowd)

Scapegoating (of the woman by the others)

Potential (for her transformation)

 …. and by His silence and His concise words, He challenged them all with the Truth

You cannot
change
others, no

but you
can
see them
with
new eyes

The eyes of Christ

who sees all
with respect and understanding
