For the week of March 25, 2012 Fifth Sunday of Lent (John 8:1-11)
In our Rite of Baptism, water is used to signify cleansing. Our Christian faith teaches us that we are “washed clean” in the waters of baptism. But with that purification comes the same message heard by the adulterous woman in today’s Gospel, “Go and sin no more.” Our life as Christians is to be a testimony to our desire to honor the great redemptive act of Christ. •Sunday: When have you felt condemned by others?
•Monday: Who offered words of and understanding to you?
•Tuesday: How has your judgment of others come back to confront your own behavior?
•Wednesday: Who are the people you point fingers at?
•Thursday: When have you felt supported by Christ, especially at a time of failure?
•Friday: Have you ever offered support to someone accused by others?
•Saturday: How seriously do you receive the message, “Go and sin no more?”
