First Reading Daniel 13:1-9,15-17, 19-30, 31-62
Response Though I should walk in the valley of the shadow of death, no evil would I fear, for you are with me.
GospelJohn 8:1-11

R/. Though I should walk in the valley of the shadow of death, no evil would I fear, for you are with me.

The LORD is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me;
he revives my soul. R/.

He guides me along the right path,
for the sake of his name.
Though I should walk in the valley of the
shadow of death, no evil would I fear, for
you are with me. Your crook and your staff
will give me comfort. R/.

You have prepared a table before me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing. R/.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.
In the LORD’s own house shall I dwell
for length of days unending. R/.

V/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

R/. Glory and praise to you, O Christ

V/. I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, says the Lord, but that the wicked turn from his way and live.

R/.Glory and praise to you, O Christ.

At that time: Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”
