Since we established what Lent is really about last Sunday, this Sunday we can do some of the reflection which should be a major part of anyone’s Lent.
One subject that gets batted about is compassion, and in Today’s Gospel reading we have Jesus confronted by a woman who, according to the law of the time, was at the bottom of society, not even really considered a person. It would have been perfectly okay, by the standards of the time, for Jesus to outright ignore her. See what he did, and what that means for us. It’s an issue in today’s news!
