Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 16, 2019 Holy Tuesday
Gospel: John 12:21-38
Lord, who is it? - Jn 13:25
As we deepen our reflection in this gospel today, Jesus talks about betrayal. He told his disciples that he will be betrayed by the one who is closest to Him. In your Lenten journey, how close are you to Jesus? Are you close to follow Him or close enough to betray him? We are invited to examine our daily way of living. Let us be the disciples of Jesus who are conscious and awake of how they interact with Jesus. Let us ask Jesus in our prayer how to follow Him closely so as not to betray him.
Mother Mary, we pray for our faithfulness to follow Jesus on his way to the cross.
