THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

"No need to recall the past,
No need to think about what was done be-fore.
See, I am doing a new deed…
(Isiah 43:18-19)

"All I can say is that I forget the past and I strain ahead…
(Phil 3:13)

These poignant words taken from today’s first and second reasons provide the perfect preamble to our dramatic Gospel reading. Perhaps the line the is most often quoted from the story of the woman caught in adultery is Jesus’ challenge to the crowd who bring her before them: "If there is one of you who has not sinned, let them be the first to throw a stone at her." It is a challenge to all of us to look inward before we "cast stones" to judge others.

But there is another equally powerful statement here by Jesus, this time to the woman herself. It is delivered quietly, when she is alone with Jesus after all her accusers have drifted away: "Neither do I condemn you. Go away and don’t sin any-more." We notice that Jesus doesn’t rake over the woman’s past. He doesn’t ask her about the claims of her accusers. He does not condemn her or criticise her. Instead he accepts her, loves her, treats her with the respect and dignity that was so lacking in the mob and gently nudges her forward into a new way of living.
