Enter into eternal life not death!
  • Daniel 13:1-9, 15- 17, 19-30, 33-62
  • Psalm 23:1-6
  • John 8:1-11

Today’s readings reveal amazing insights about sin, death and eternal life. We see in the Gospel proclamation the story of the adulterous woman. Condemned to death by the worldly standards and the compassion, wisdom and intervention of the Lord that releases her from the clutches of death. The wisdom of the Lord is seen in asking the one without sin to cast the first stone. The love of God clearly intervened and turned a rotting soul to eternal life. We see the same wisdom in Daniel who intervenes in the case of Susanna, who was falsely accused of the sin of impurity. She is set free by God through Daniel. We can relate to our own trials in life whatever they may be and take heart that the Lord is there for us when we walk through the valley of death. We may be in the most despicable of sin or we could be falsely accused of the same despicable sin yet we can be assured that the mercy of God will deliver us. The Lord sees the heart, and not the outward appearance.

Prayer: Abba Father, let your goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives. Amen.
