Wednesday of Holy Week

John relates

“After saying this Jesus was troubled in spirit, and declared, “Very truly, I tell you, one of you will betray me.” The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom he was speaking.” (John 13:21-22)

They were uncertain because they all knew their hearts, knew their vacillating loyalty, their weakness. Whatever his intent, each man knew that he had within him the seeds of betrayal. And those seeds would bear fruit in the coming days as they all abandoned him – all betrayed him in some fashion. But all but one would be restored…

“Peter denied Jesus; Judas betrayed Jesus. The bad news was that both of them fell off the track and were both filled with regrets, remorse and anguish for their mischievous behaviours. However it was only Peter who chose to rise again after falling! Judas chose to end it with suicide! If you fall, you can rise again”

Prayer for Wednesday of Holy Week

Lord God, whose blessed Son our Savior gave his body to be whipped and his face to be spit upon: Give us grace to accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time, confident of the glory that shall be revealed; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
