Words to Ponder …

God’s sun rises on the bad and the good, he rains on the just and the unjust. (Matthew 5:45)

(Sunday and yesterday), the Mass readings remind us of two women accused of adultery: Susanna, the innocent, and the nameless woman, guilty, brought before Jesus. We might think of them as representing the two faces of God’s people: innocent and guilty. The Lord hears not their deeds but their plight and rescues them from their accusers. Jesus, who take the place of stricken humanity before the wrath of the enemy, will not so spare himself.

  1. We've been having a parish mission here and when I went to Mass yesterday morning, the priests homily was focused on that verse of scripture.
    He reminded how often we complain and become bitter when God rains on the just and the unjust. When we are being so faithful and righteous while the cheat is dishonest and gets blessed and rained on just as much.
    There's a lot to ponder on that verse, isn't there?
    He ended with this line:

    Thank you God for what you have given me.
    Thank you for what you have taken from me.
    Thank you for what you have left me with.
