Reflection for Wednesday of Holy Week

Today is known as Spy Wednesday because on this day Judas made a bargain with the high priest to betray Jesus for 30 silver pieces.

Today's Mass Readings

Today's Spiritual Meditation

Jesus carries this betrayal in love so that we too may be able to carry in love all the struggles the Church is now living, all the struggles of humanity. We know that these battles are terrible and sometimes they make us lose hope. Well, no! They should not make us lose hope! The stronger the battle, the more Jesus is present and the more He wants to be glorified in our heart. And Jesus is glorified in our heart to the extent that love triumphs. This is truly what the glory of Christ is: love victorious over betrayal, victorious over all lies.

Thanks for this reflection! I recently posed the question in a post: "What was the gravest mistake Judas made?" and this post and video answer that question very succinctly. Have a blessed Holy Week!
