Pray for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani


#1

My Fellow Members of Catholic Answers Forums.
Greetings to you all!
I am requesting for prayers for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani.
All I know about this lady is what I read in the news media.
She is in prison somewhere in Iran awaiting death, possibly by stoning.
Every time I read about her, my heart just goes out to her.
This Sunday she was again mentioned in one the dailies here and her picture was
included. While looking at the picture on my way home from church it suddenly occurred to me that we can indeed do something. We can pray for this lady.
So please, let us pray for the pardon and release from prison of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani.
Thank You.

and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

As they stood there asking Him questions, He straightened Himself up
and said to them, " whichever one of you has not committed any sin
may throw the first stone at her. "
Then He bent over again and wrote in the ground.
When they heard this, they all left one by one, the older ones first.
Jesus was left alone with the woman still standing there.
He straightened Himself up and said to her,
" Where are they?, Is there no one left to condemn you?"
No one Sir." she answered
" Well then," Jesus said, " I do not condemn you either. Go but do not sin again"
John 8: 7-11 The Good News Bible.

Jesus, we pray for the release of Sakineh from prison.

What exactly was her “crime”? Regardless, I will pray for her.

Hi Holly.
From the news in the public domain, I gathered that the
allegation against her is connected somehow to John 8: 1-11
Thanks for caring.

For those of you who are not familiar with John 8:1-11, here it is in the Douay Rheims Bible:

(John 8:1 DRB) And Jesus went unto mount Olivet.
(John 8:2 DRB) And early in the morning he came again into the temple: and all the people came to him. And sitting down he taught them.
(John 8:3 DRB) And the scribes and Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst,
(John 8:4 DRB) And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery.
(John 8:5 DRB) Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou?
(John 8:6 DRB) And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground.
(John 8:7 DRB) When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
(John 8:8 DRB) And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground.
(John 8:9 DRB) But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst.
(John 8:10 DRB) Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?
(John 8:11 DRB) Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.

Is this woman going to be stoned for adultery or something?

Regardless:

THE MEMORARE OF ST. BERNARD

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help,
and sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother,
to thee I come,
before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate!
despise not my petitions,
but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
