Lectio sancti Evangelii secundum Joannem.
Jesus went unto mount Olivet. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him, and sitting down he taught them. And the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst, And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery. Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou? And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground. When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground. But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst. Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee? Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.
Per evangelica dicta, deleantur nostra delicta.
Popette has seen enough loving second marriages to know they are commonly the greatest blessing that a family receives from the divine hands.
We will not be answering any dubia.
We also don’t remember hiring any canon law enforcement officers. Would someone please introduce the self-appointed matrimonial marshals to a productive role? We are thinking maybe sign spinners and sandwich boards to point the way to church from the highway. That way, they can preach the Gospel effectively without anyone having to listen to them.
