Reflection: We are all very aware of the phrase, ‘people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.’ The gospel this Sunday is usually called the Woman caught in adultery. The religious leaders – the Pharisees – drag a woman into the market place and throw her to the ground. They say that she is sinner and deserves to be stoned to death publicly. Jesus, remains calm and looks at these angry self-righteous men. He then says to each of them; ‘if there is one of you who has not sinned, let him throw the first stone at her.’ But they can’t, because they are all sinners too! Jesus treats her with respect and dignity; he lifts and raises her up at all levels. He doesn’t condemn, judge or criticise her; but he does challenge her not to sin again. Jesus treats us the same way he treats the men and this woman; he doesn’t condemn, dismiss or judge us when we sin; but he does forgive and challenge us not to do it again. As in all things, Jesus offers us an example that we are to follow; we are called to love others, not judge or condemn them.
