“Remember, you are dust…” [12]

Homily for the Fifth Sunday of Lent

John 8-1-11

The scribes & Pharisees avoided being seen by putting this woman in between them and Jesus.  Isn’t it so much more delicious to push someone out in front of us, especially one on whom we vent our anger… It’s so much more wonderful than looking at ourselves.  Yet it’s a dodge to avoid also a merciful encounter with Christ.  The irony here is that this crowd of scribes & Pharisees took up stones to throw at Jesus in just 25 verses (!).

John 8:1-11    “’Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.’  Again he bent down and wrote on the ground. And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders.  So he was left alone with the woman before him.”
