In today’s Gospel, Jesus foretells His betrayal, and gives Judas the morsel after which he goes out into the night.

In the play by Dorothy L Sayers, ‘The Man Born to be King’, the author shows forth brilliantly the character development of Judas Iscariot: from a fervent disciple to the one who betrayed his Master. She also shows the awareness of Jesus from the beginning of who would eventually betray Him, which we see also in Sacred Scripture.

As the Passion drama moves inexorably onward, let us be open in the depth of our heart to all that the Lord desires to show us; and may God bless you this day.
