Wednesday of Holy Week
“Surely it is not I, Rabbi?” Mt 26:25
Admitting my sins and acknowledging my sinfulness is one of the hardest things for me to do. In today’s Gospel, Jesus calls Judas out and I can’t help but think about the times that I have been “called out” to own up to my sinfulness. In this passage, what follows is the “last supper” experience we look forward to each time we gather for the Eucharistic liturgy.
So what can I do today that continues to make this a holy week as we look to celebrate the resurrection?
I don’t always say the nicest things to people and my anger has gotten the best of me on occasion this week. I can’t just jump into the Easter celebration without acknowledging my sin and reconciling those things of my life that are not good! It will put a damper on truly celebrating the joy and hope we long for in celebrating the resurrection.
So what are you waiting for? Need to be called out? I would not wait for that. Go and be reconciled if you want to really enjoy God’s goodness this coming weekend.
