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 8, 2020 – Holy Wednesday
Gospel: Matthew 26:14-25
“Woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. ”
Matthew here tackles the betrayal of Judas as differentiated from Peter’s denial. Peter deeply loved the Lord but was easily intimidated and feared by what others said of the Lord. Judas on the other hand, sought ways and means to bring Him to the hands of the Pharisees.
Where are we in our convictions, do we seek the easy or the hard way to holiness? Do we see the lessons behind the hardships? Are we mindful of the whys of what we are going through?
We pray for discernment specially now that we and the world are facing these unprecedented challenges. With faith, let us see the love of God all around us.
