Jesus said: “My people, in today’s first reading you read about the prophet Nathan being called to talk to King David about his affair with Bathsheba. David was attracted to her, and committed adultery with her. David had her husband, Uriah the Hittite, purposely placed in battle where he would be killed. Then David took Uriah’s wife to be his own. For this Nathan told David how I was displeased with his sin. Many things befell David’s family as a punishment for this sin. In your news lately, you are also seeing men of prestige being fired or resigning their jobs because of scandals with women. Even sexual harassment has become a recent problem in the workplace, as some women are coming forward publically about such abuses. You have seen some marriages come into divorce over such infidelities as adultery. It is important for both spouses to remain faithful, without having affairs outside of marriage. You can see how such an affair with King David has been a constant problem of sin throughout history for other men and women. So I call My people to obey My Commandments, and be faithful to your spouses.”
