When Mercy Found Me
Rhett Walker Band

Today’s verse…

I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked man, says the Lord,but rather in his conversion, that he may live.
Ezekiel You 33:11

Today’s readings…

Monday of the Fifth Week of Lent
Lectionary: 251



Reading I
Dn 13:1-9, 15-17, 19-30, 33-62 or 13:41c-62 (
In Babylon there lived a man named Joakim,who married a very beautiful and God-fearing woman, Susanna,the daughter of Hilkiah;her pious parents had trained their daughteraccording to the law of Moses.Joakim was very rich;he had a garden near his house,and the Jews had recourse to him oftenbecause he was the most respected of them all.
That year, two elders of the people were appointed judges,of whom the Lord said, “Wickedness has come out of Babylon:from the elders who were to govern the people as judges.”These men, to whom all brought their cases,frequented the house of Joakim.When the people left at noon,Susanna used to enter her husband’s garden for a walk.When the old men saw her enter every day for her walk,they began to lust for her.They suppressed their consciences;they would not allow their eyes to look to heaven,and did not keep in mind just judgments.
One day, while they were waiting for the right moment,she entered the garden as usual, with two maids only.She decided to bathe, for the weather was warm.Nobody else was there except the two elders,who had hidden themselves and were watching her.“Bring me oil and soap,” she said to the maids,“and shut the garden doors while I bathe.”
As soon as the maids had left,the two old men got up and hurried to her.“Look,” they said, “the garden doors are shut, and no one can see us;give in to our desire, and lie with us.If you refuse, we will testify against youthat you dismissed your maids because a young man was here with you.”
“I am completely trapped,” Susanna groaned.“If I yield, it will be my death;if I refuse, I cannot escape your power.Yet it is better for me to fall into your power without guiltthan to sin before the Lord.”Then Susanna shrieked, and the old men also shouted at her,as one of them ran to open the garden doors.When the people in the house heard the cries from the garden,they rushed in by the side gate to see what had happened to her.At the accusations by the old men,the servants felt very much ashamed,for never had any such thing been said about Susanna.
When the people came to her husband Joakim the next day,the two wicked elders also came,fully determined to put Susanna to death.Before all the people they ordered:“Send for Susanna, the daughter of Hilkiah,the wife of Joakim.”When she was sent for,she came with her parents, children and all her relatives.All her relatives and the onlookers were weeping.
In the midst of the people the two elders rose upand laid their hands on her head.Through tears she looked up to heaven,for she trusted in the Lord wholeheartedly.The elders made this accusation:“As we were walking in the garden alone,this woman entered with two girlsand shut the doors of the garden, dismissing the girls.A young man, who was hidden there, came and lay with her.When we, in a corner of the garden, saw this crime,we ran toward them.We saw them lying together,but the man we could not hold, because he was stronger than we;he opened the doors and ran off.Then we seized her and asked who the young man was,but she refused to tell us.We testify to this.”The assembly believed them,since they were elders and judges of the people,and they condemned her to death.
But Susanna cried aloud:“O eternal God, you know what is hiddenand are aware of all things before they come to be:you know that they have testified falsely against me. Here I am about to die,though I have done none of the thingswith which these wicked men have charged me.”
The Lord heard her prayer.As she was being led to execution,God stirred up the holy spirit of a young boy named Daniel,and he cried aloud:“I will have no part in the death of this woman.”All the people turned and asked him, “What is this you are saying?”He stood in their midst and continued,“Are you such fools, O children of Israel! To condemn a woman of Israel without examinationand without clear evidence?Return to court, for they have testified falsely against her.”
Then all the people returned in haste.To Daniel the elders said,“Come, sit with us and inform us,since God has given you the prestige of old age.”But he replied,“Separate these two far from each other that I may examine them.”
After they were separated one from the other,he called one of them and said:“How you have grown evil with age!Now have your past sins come to term:passing unjust sentences, condemning the innocent,and freeing the guilty, although the Lord says,‘The innocent and the just you shall not put to death.’Now, then, if you were a witness,tell me under what tree you saw them together.”“Under a mastic tree,” he answered.Daniel replied, “Your fine lie has cost you your head,for the angel of God shall receive the sentence from himand split you in two.”Putting him to one side, he ordered the other one to be brought.Daniel said to him,“Offspring of Canaan, not of Judah, beauty has seduced you,lust has subverted your conscience.This is how you acted with the daughters of Israel,and in their fear they yielded to you;but a daughter of Judah did not tolerate your wickedness.Now, then, tell me under what tree you surprised them together.”“Under an oak,” he said.Daniel replied, “Your fine lie has cost you also your head,for the angel of God waits with a sword to cut you in twoso as to make an end of you both.”
The whole assembly cried aloud,blessing God who saves those who hope in him.They rose up against the two elders,for by their own words Daniel had convicted them of perjury.According to the law of Moses,they inflicted on themthe penalty they had plotted to impose on their neighbor:they put them to death.
Thus was innocent blood spared that day.

Jn 8:1-11 (

Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area, and all the people started coming to him, and he sat down and taught them.Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle.They said to him,“Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery.Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women.So what do you say?”They said this to test him,so that they could have some charge to bring against him.Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.But when they continued asking him,he straightened up and said to them,“Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.And in response, they went away one by one,beginning with the elders.So he was left alone with the woman before him.Then Jesus straightened up and said to her,“Woman, where are they?Has no one condemned you?”She replied, “No one, sir.”Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”

My prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit within me.
My merciful Lord, You see past our sin and look to the heart. Your love is infinite and awe-inspiring. I thank You for the compassion You have shown to me, and I pray that I may always imitate that same compassion to every sinner all around me. Jesus, I trust in You.
Thank You for Your mercy and grace. For walking with me and mine. Forgiving us and teaching us. Guiding and protecting us.

Hear my prayers!
Praying for each of mine I ask Your love and protect surround them. Filling them with Your peace and confidence in our Father’s Word. Comfort them by letting them feel Your presence, and bless them with Your wisdom.

Not my will, but Yours Lord God.

In Jesus name I pray.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

O my Jesus

O my Jesus, have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Take all souls into heaven, especially, those most in need of thy mercy.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Closing Prayer

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
