The Scripture readings on the Sundays of Lent show the power, love, mercy, and compassion of Jesus. This weekend we hear the account of the woman caught in adultery, As the people were preparing to stone her I can only imagine the fear that must have been present in her mind. The presence of Jesus brought her new life. "Has no one condemned you?"
As we approach the final two weeks of Lent I encourage you to take some time to reflect on your spiritual journey during the preceding four weeks. Are you closer to Christ now than you were on Ash Wednesday? Have these days of penitence brought abundant fruit into your life? If these days have been full of abundant blessings--wonderful! Maintain your diligence in seeking the Lord with your whole heart. mind, soul, and strength. If these days have not been as fruitful as you had hoped, please use the remaining days of this holy season to grow in wisdom, grace, and holiness. Ask our dear Lord to guide you. Pray for an increase of faith, hope, and love!
