Daily Mass: The stage is set, let the great story begin. Catholic Inspiration

The Passover meal is prepared, the disciples are gathered around Jesus, and with sorrow the Lord announces that a betrayer is in their midst.  The point?  There is no spin or sugar coating salvation history as we embark on the Sacred Triduum.  For in the midst of human darkness and sin, the Son of God will shine the light of grace upon our world.

Fr. Andrew’s Daily Mass Homily – Tuesday of Holy Week

Daily Mass Readings

John’s Gospel today shows the Lord with a troubled heart as he announces that both Judas and Peter will deny him.  In the same meal where the Christ left us the Eucharist he also acknowledges the weakness of his own disciples.  It begs the question: When have we denied the Lord in our lives?  When have we turned away from Jesus in a moment of temptation?  May this Holy Week renew our faith and help us return to the one who died and rose that we might have a path that leads out of sin into newness of life.
