DEADLINE Deadline for churches is Friday at 12 noon = 00001111 Ponder Tdiese T[itn#s00 your y00Ceart ( U Dennts Justison Last week the anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision to allow abortion was acknowledged by those on both sides of the issue. Driving home from school, I heard the stories of many women as they called the Catholic radio station I was listening to. They shared their pain, fear, sad- ness, and regret. One woman was seventeen at the time of her abortion. After 30 years it still haunts her. She was condemned by her parents. She was a sinner it seems, not for having sex, but for getting pregnant. Her boyfriend pres- sured her to have an abortion. Her parents paid for it. Her church blamed her for it all then ignored her. Our faults and sin, our evil and darkness are a drop of water in the ocean of God's mercy. One thing we churchy folk need to remind ourselves of is that we all sin. The sin of unforgiveness, or judging others can leave a soul with a hard, unloving heart. I wonder if the cause of abortion in many cases is just that: cold, unloving hearts by people in the woman's life. Any sin is merely a reflection of our pain. Our hearts are ill, which causes spiritual blindness. We're not immoral as much as we are blind. We need a doctor. We need Jesus to heal our souls. I don't like abortion. But 1 love every woman who had one. And I en- courage every woman who has had one to go and sit with the Lord. He i loves you too. He will not hold this against you. As He says in John's Gospel, "I will not reject anyone who comes to Me." We humans in the Church, well, too often we greet people with the eye i of judgment. Jesus won't do that. Our blueprint can be the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11). Jesus didn't put the woman on trial and say, "You naughty person. Shame on you." He met her exactly where she was. He loved her exactly where she was. His love set her free and allowed her to love. His love was what she was looking for her whole life. Her heart was full of pain. It became ill. She was looking for love. And she found something that felt better than what she had. But it wasn't the real thing. Jesus showed her the real thing and it changed her. God doesn't love us if we change, He loves us so that we can change. Love changes us, not judgment. The people who accused her and judged her had a worse sin. Jesus is a lot tougher on those who condemn than He is on those who are con- demned. Divine love has nothing to do with being good, being right, or even being holy. Love is God's job description. No matter what we do, God says, "That's what I am willing to work with. That's the mustard seed which I will use to make great things happen." We all do bad things. None of us merit God's love, not one. He in- vites the good and bad alike to the great wedding feast (Matthew 22:10). Father Richard Rohr says it well. "Love alone of all things is suffi- ': cient unto itself. It is its own end, its own merit, its own beginning, and i: its own satisfaction. It seeks no cause beyond itself and needs no fruit outside of itself. Its fruit is its use. ! love simply because I am love.  That is my deepest identity. I am created in and for and because of love. i: I came forth from a God who is love and share in that divine identity. Without love, I will never know who I am, or who God is, or why the uni- i verse was created." i  If you need to talk, send me an e-mail: [ Peace be with you.
