Homily: 5th Sunday in Lent

This Sunday we hear the familiar Gospel of the woman who was caught in adultery and about to be stoned.  Meanwhile the Scribes and the Pharisees, keepers of the Jewish Law, are not very happy with all the attention Jesus is getting, so they a lay trap for him.  What does Christ do?  Does he focus on the sin or the shame?  

See how a Jesuit who works with gangs in LA sheds light into the deepest meaning of this Gospel story.
