DG BookGospel: Matthew 26:14-25
Then one of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “How much will you give me if I hand him over to you?”
They promised to give him thirty pieces of silver; and from then on, he kept looking for the best way to hand Jesus over to them. On the first day
of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare the Passover meal for you?”

Jesus answered, “Go into the city, to the house of a certain man, and tell him, ‘The Master says: My hour is near, and I will celebrate the Passover with my disciples
in your house.’” The disciples did as Jesus had ordered, and prepared the Passover meal. When it was evening, Jesus sat at table with the Twelve. While they
were eating, Jesus said, “Truly I say to you: one of you will betray me.” They were deeply distressed, and they asked him, one after the other, “You do not mean
me, do you, Lord?” He answered, “The one who dips his bread with me will betray me. The Son of Man is going as the Scriptures say he will. But alas for that one
who betrays the Son of Man: better for him not to have been born.” Judas, the one who would betray him, also asked, “You do not mean me, Master, do you?”
Jesus replied, “You have said it.”

 

Reflection:

 

Reading horoscope is a universal addiction, precisely
because we all crave to know how our future unfolds.
However, knowing one’s future in advance can be a
terrible burden with disastrous consequences—unless you
have the kind of heart of Christ. Having known well in advance
his destiny, Jesus still chose Judas as a disciple, nurtured
him with his friendship and teachings; and now, at the
Passover meal, shares his bread with him. Jesus does not hold
back his presence, love, and care from Judas. How is it possible?
Only one who has the heart of God can do so. I am reminded
of a story from John Shea. Jesus comes to meet a modern day
down-and-out-disciple who has lost fire and is planning to
abandon faith. Sharing popcorn with him, Jesus tells him: “Love
me, because I am large enough to betray.”
