Wednesday of Holy Week

April 16, 2014


Blessed Spy Wednesday!

Spy Wednesday is a popular term, not a liturgical one,
yet it describes Judas’ new position among the disciples.
Today he becomes a spy among the Twelve, an informer for the enemy,
waiting for the opportune moment to hand over his Lord to condemnation and death.

Entrance Antiphon:
At the Name of Jesus, every knee should bend, of those in Heaven and on the earth,
for the Lord became obedient unto death, death on a cross:
therefore Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

O God, who willed Your Son to submit for our sake
to the yoke of the Cross,
so that You might drive from us the power of the enemy,
grant us, Your servants, to attain the grace of the resurrection.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Isaiah 50:4-9 (My face I did not shield from buffets and spitting)
Psalm 69:8-10, 21-22, 31, 33-34 “Lord, in Your great love, answer me.”
+Matthew 26:14-25 (Woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed)

The Word won’t sell Himself
for any price.

I cannot make Him
by my buffetings
and scorn.

He rouses me
with Truth

The only question is
if I will sell

Death rather than sin!
~St. Dominic Savio

What’s my price? Is it less than the price Jesus paid for me?
