DG BookGospel: Jn 13:21-33, 36-38*
After saying this, Jesus was distressed in spirit, and said plainly, “Truly, one of you will betray me.” The disciples then looked at one
another, wondering whom he meant. One of the disciples, the one Jesus loved, was reclining near Jesus; so Simon Peter signaled him to ask
Jesus whom he meant. And the disciple, who was reclining near Jesus, asked him, “Lord, who is it?” Jesus answered, “I shall dip a piece of


bread in the dish, and he to whom I give it, is the one.” So Jesus dipped the bread in the dish and gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
As Judas took the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. Jesus then said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” (...) When Judas had gone out, Jesus said, “Now is
the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. God will glorify him, and he will glorify him very soon. My children, I am with you for only a
little while; you will look for me, but as I already told the Jews, now I tell you: where I am going you cannot come Simon Peter said to him,
“Lord, where are you going?” Jesus answered, “Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but afterwards you will.” Peter said, “Lord, why
can’t I follow you now? I am ready to give my life for you.” “To give your life for me?” Jesus asked Peter. “Truly I tell you, the cock will not
crow, before you have denied me three times.”

 

Reflection:

Jesus has to deal with the fact that one of His close disciples would
betray Him. Having that knowledge, Jesus did not prepare for His own defense
and safety. He allowed the matter to take its course. He could have stopped it. But
He chose not to because it is the way for the world to understand the immensity
of God’s love. That is why we sometimes accept heavy sacrifices and
losses. It is to show the sincerity of our love. After Jesus’ passion, death and
resurrection, humanity could not anymore question God’s love. He
paid dearly for His love to be credible. His sacrifice will forever haunt those
who insist on questioning and not believing the love of God for us.
