Isaiah 50:4-9; Psalm 69:8-10, 21-22, 31, 33-34; Matthew 26:14-25
‘Not I, Rabbi, surely?’
Jesus was betrayed by Judas’ greed and malice; and Peter’s pride and weakness. Like them, we, too, are vulnerable to temptations. In his passion, Jesus entered into the mystery of our sinfulness and our dying – the bitter fruits of original sin – so that they would no longer imprison us. His passion and death – seemingly a disaster – is, in fact, God’s saving plan of mercy. The violence of sin and death will be defeated by the Easter joy of the resurrection.
Jesus, in my powerlessness, I place myself in your presence.
