Monday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

Jesus’ words were addressed to the religious leaders of His time. He calls them hypocrites because their call was to teach people how to live morally correct lives according to God’s commandments. And if someone broke a law, they would be punished, removed from the community, or even stoned to death. Remember that woman who was caught in the act of adultery, when those religious leaders wanted to stone her to death? Jesus said: if you have no sins, go ahead, and throw those stones. But nobody was without sin, and nobody threw a stone. We all are quick in judging others but at the same time we keep forgetting that we need to first look into ourselves, our own lives and see if we are any better than the person we judge. Jesus reminds us that one day we all will be judged according to our judgments towards others. He will judge me, you, and all those religious leaders of our times that preach to us how to live according to the commandments, and at the same time are committing terrible sins. “Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.”
