Fr. Joachim on the the mercy and kindness of Jesus and how it is portrayed in such an extraordinary way in the account of the woman accused of adultery. He points out that there was even significant debate amongst Christians as to whether this account was even authentic revelation since it seemed to be too lax in regard to sin. But it does not condone the sin and Jesus, in his act of mercy, gives her a command to sin no more, that is, repent. So should we during this lent, look to God's mercy for our past sins by going to confession and make a firm resolve to amendment, doing penance, and thus being purified, enter into the joy of Easter.
