‘AMEN, I SAY TO YOU, ONE OF YOU WILL BETRAY ME.’ Michelangelo, Sistine ChapelWhat comes to mind today are St Paul’s words: ‘What I do, I do not understand. For I do not do what I want, but I do what I hate’ (Rm 7:15). Darkness gets a grip on us, like it did Judas, and we do the unthinkable, what we hate, what we said we would never do. Like Judas, we betray. ‘Judas, oh Judas—betrayal hurts more when the one who betrays has received much from the one he betrays. Betrayal hurts, it hurts very much’ (B. Hume). Living and true God, lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
‘SURELY IT IS NOT I, RABBI?’JESUS ANSWERED, ‘YOU HAVE SAID SO.’
When we run well in the way, let us beware that the serpent may not lie hid anywhere in the path and undermine the footstep of the horse—that is, of our body—and suddenly throw the sleeping rider. For if we are vigilant, we ought to be on our guard in some measure and shun the bites of the serpent.(St Ambrose)
ANYONE WHO TURNS AWAY FROM THE CROSS,TURNS AWAY FROM THE RESURRECTION.(Pope Francis, Twitter, March 28, 2018)
