The woman caught in adultery stood before Christ completely vulnerable, fearing death and damnation.
Yet Jesus silenced her accusers with his just and merciful love, restoring her dignity and her life.
Seminarian Mark Tobin of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary shares how the Lord does the same for us when we have been wounded and alienated by our sins. By humbly giving our brokenness to Christ, we are cleansed and renewed — and freed to share God’s mercy with others.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
