Bulletin Shorts for the Fifth Sunday of Lent

Fifth Sunday of Lent –  03 April 2022 

Year C readings: Isaiah 43:16-21.  Psalm 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6.  Philippians 3:8-14.  John 8:1-11.

Reflecting on Shameful Acts.  She is caught in adultery.  They drag her before Jesus and the crowd, more to trip him up than mete out the law.  What does Jesus do?  He asks, who is without sin?  A great lenten question.

  • What stone will I put down and not pound against someone else?
  • What sin will I admit and find a way to resolve it?
  • Because of God’s mercy to me, what mercy work will I do for another?

Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
