Wednesday of Holy Week
Lord, in your great love, answer me. (Responsorial Psalm 69:14c)
Lord Jesus, when You announced to Your apostles that one of them would betray You, with deep distress each asked You one after another, "Surely it it is not I, Lord?"
They had to ask You; they dared not to tell You. Their question is of fear seeking comfort, please tell me I will not betray You. The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written. Surely, it is no I, Lord?
