To be perfectly honest I can't believe the lack of love for this woman and your brother on this thread. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, right? Yes, what they're doing isn't right but that doesn't give any of us the right to get up on some high horse and condemn them. We are to be little Christs and how do you think He would react in this situation? I highly doubt He would say "get $*@#%ed" and never speak to them again or wouldn't invite them to family dinners. From what I know of Jesus, which is admittedly not enough, He would welcome them, love them, lead them by example and call them to sin no longer. Jesus knew that Judas was going to betray Him, possibly the worst sin ever committed, but did He kick Judas out at the Last Supper? No. The brother and mistress' sin is one of lust and of the flesh. That is a human sin. Remember which sin belongs to the Devil, pride. We must not let our pride parade itself around as piety.
Where oh where oh where do I begin???
First, did you not ever hear of tough love?
Second, did not Christ, when giving instructions on fraternal correction, state that if they refuse to listen even to the Church, to treat them like a gentile or tax collector?
Third, Judas had a role in fulfilling prophecy regarding Jesus. I seriously doubt that the two adulterers do.
Fourth, did not Our Lady state at Fatima that it was the sins of the flesh that would send most people to hell?
Fifth, I notice that you love throwing around the "cast the first stone" quote. Nobody is talking about putting them to death. In fact, one of the spiritual works of mercy is to adminish the sinner.
Sixth, while "camping out" on the "throw the first stone" quote, have you forgotten that also in the Bible the Church in Corinth was severely criticized for toleratring a sexually immoral situation and was told to expel the sinners? So yeah, it DOES give us the right to condemn them.
Finally, in all your post about the love for the two adulterers, you said nothing - NOTHING - about the wife who was UNJUSTLY kicked out of her home. Where is your love for her?
