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 17, 2019 - Holy Wednesday
Gospel: Mt 26:14-25
Hail to you, our King; you alone are compassionate with our errors
Defensiveness or denial are some of the “defense mechanisms” humans do when one is guilty of committing wrongdoings. In the gospel today, the disciples were “deeply distressed” about Jesus talking about the betrayal involving one of the disciples. In our daily life, Jesus continuously invites us to go back to him and join him in the table despite our imperfections and errors. Jesus is a compassionate King of all.
Mother Mary, we pray for your accompaniment to light our path walking towards Jesus.
