“Neither Do I Condemn You”

— Posted by John (March 18, 2013 at 3:12 pm)

rachelThis past Sunday at Mass, Catholics heard the story of the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11).

One thing I find amazing about this Gospel passage is that it almost didn’t make it into the Bible. In fact, before the Bible was assembled the way it is today, some versions of John’s Gospel didn’t include this story.

St. Augustine tells us that many early Christians were afraid of keeping this story in John’s Gospel since it showed Jesus as being so merciful that they thought it might lead people to think that the reality of sin wasn’t as big of a deal as the Church made it out to be.

Apparently, the Holy Spirit wasn’t concerned about this, since He made sure the story was kept in there.

The story of the woman caught in adultery was the inspiration behind a post-abortion healing brochure [PDF] the Pro-Life Action League designed a few years ago. On the front is an image of Jesus and the woman, and the words “Neither do I condemn you.” On the back is information on where to find help dealing with post-abortion aftermath, and the message, “Please give this card to someone who needs it.”

We encourage sidewalk counselors to give these cards to women as they leave the abortion clinic, and we also pass them out during our Face the Truth demonstrations. They’ve become so popular that we now get orders for them (both the English and Spanish versions) from sidewalk counselors, pro-life groups, and post-abortion ministries all across the country.

It’s no coincidence that as more and more women continue to receive post-abortion healing and speak out publicly about their experiences, there is less and less support for abortion among the general population.

The more we learn about the horrible pain and suffering experienced by women following an abortion (as well as men who are involved with abortion), and the relief they feel after receiving God’s mercy and forgiveness, the greater the need for us to offer them a helping hand.
