Gospel: John 18:1-19:42
Shall I not drink the cup that the Father gave me? - Jn 18:11
Today we reflect on the Passion of Jesus Christ on the way to the cross. In the gospel, Jesus clearly knows and is assured by the Father that everything that was happening, no matter how painful the betrayal and denial, it was because he was fulfilling a truth that must happen. Jesus life is a testimony of how God the Father showed his eternal love for us, His people.
As we reflect and pray on Jesus passion today, let us ask ourselves how have we drank the cup that God the Father gave us? How have we lived our Lenten journey walking with Jesus?
