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.
