Wednesday of Holy Week

March 23, 2016

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.

Readings:
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)

Judas
‘Twas Judas
got the money;
Christ,
the Cross.

Both ended
on a tree.

Christ
saved the world,
while Judas
suffered loss.

What advantage would it be
if I gained the whole world
–or even just avoided suffering–
but lost my soul?
