Jesus speaks a word of pardon into the life of the women caught in adultery today in the Gospel. The debt of sin for all of us is paid by Jesus when he dies on the cross for all our sins.
God wants to pour out His mercy upon us. Reconciliation is a sacrament of mercy that is offered to all of us each day. Where Jesus says, “I forgive you, go and sin no more” God doesn’t want us carrying the weight of shame and guilt. He wants us to live in the joy of the Lord.
