Learning from Our Best Teacher By Mary Katharine Deeley
© 2019 Liguori Publica ons At the climax of The Miracle Worker, the
play about deaf and blind Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, Annie spells W‐A‐T‐E‐R into Helen’s hand while water pours over Helen’s other hand. Helen’s face changes as she suddenly makes the connec on between the signs Annie is making and the reality of the water. Helen starts touching things wildly while Annie signs the le ers in her hand at an ever‐ faster rate. Finally, Helen points to Annie, who spells T‐E‐A‐C‐H‐E‐R in her hand. The best teacher is not the one who can speak the loudest or the most, but the one who pa ently does the same thing over and over un l the student makes the connec on and finally learns.
Jesus is our teacher, and in the Gospel story today he demonstrates it not with a wordy lecture but by drawing in the dust and invi ng his reluctant students to think about what they are doing. We don’t know what he wrote, and it isn’t important. He neither engaged in the debate nor shamed the woman brought before him. He made the scribes and Pharisees look and wait. Then he asked them to judge themselves first. It’s a good lesson for us all. Before we condemn anyone else, we should look at the ways in which we have sinned. The lesson con nues for the woman as she is told to go and sin no more.
As Helen was a en ve to Annie, let us be
a en ve to what Jesus spells out for us. His lessons lead us to new life and the knowledge of God. +
A Word from Pope Francis Jesus…taught that the true ba lefield, where
violence and peace meet, is the human heart….When he stopped her accusers from stoning the woman caught in adultery, and
when, on the night before he died, he told Peter to put away his sword, Jesus marked out the
path of nonviolence. —World Day of Peace, January 1, 2017
Ponder and Pray Learning o en requires persistence. Am I
persistent in prac cing the life lessons Jesus teaches me?
When was the last me I put my sins behind me by par cipa ng in the sacrament of
reconcilia on? Lord, your grace and love make me whole. Help me to trust in the endless possibili es of the
present moment. —From Mindful Medita ons for Every Day of Lent and
Easter, Rev. Warren J. Savage and Mary Ann McSweeny

Starting Anew “Go, and from now on do not sin any more.” In today’s gospel, Jesus spared the
woman from condemna on and gave her a chance to
start anew. In the same way, His sacrifice on the cross has saved us, allowing us to
repent and sin no more. How do we express our gra tude? How will we start anew?
