Gospel: Mt 26: 14-25
Trust in Him Who Knows EverYthing
Jesus knows what is in the heart of everyone. He has predicted Judas betrayal and because of this, follows a tragic moment in Jesus´´ life: his Passion and death.
In today’s gospel, the disciples offer themselves to prepare the Passover. Jesus asks them to find a certain man and tell him, “It is at your house that I am keeping Passover with my disciples.” We can see how the Lord God is the all-ever knowing and powerful to Jesus life. Just like in our own lives, the Lord God is the author who gives us directions to where we go when we are confused, consolations when we are tired and providence when we lack hope.
Today, we are called to imitate the trust of Jesus in the Father who knows everything and at the same time, entrust our lives to the Lord knowing that whatever happens, He will be always at our side in times of challenges and trials. He is the one who holds our life. Jesus is the clear and concrete example of how we should entrust our lives to the Lord. Let us pray for the concrete options on how to do this.
