As the Lord speaks with his disciples, he reveals his suffering, death and resurrection. May this sacrifice inspire us to recognize our sins and return to Christ, who reveals God’s love through the Cross.
Both Ezekiel and Psalm 51 offer the beautiful image of God cleansing our souls with pure water that washes away our sins. May the image inspire us to repent and run to the Lord, who longs purify our hearts.
Today’s psalm both acknowledges our struggles and affirms our faith in God’s grace. May we turn to the Lord in our times of trial and draw strength from the one who died that we might have eternal life.
The temptation and capitulation to sin has now led Judas to a moment of action. As he betrays Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, we recall how all sin leads us ultimately away from God and one another.
John’s Gospel reveals the moment when Judas gave in to Satan’s temptation in the darkness of night. Enlighted by this passage, we recognize that we face a daily spiritual battle with evil that requires our vigilance and trust in the Lord.
