“I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6)
Today we continue our waiting and preparation as we approach Good Friday. Just as you did yesterday, reserve some time to “Be still and know that [He] is God” (Psalm 46:10).
If possible, make a Holy Hour today and visit with Our Lord in Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. During His agony in the garden on Holy Thursday Jesus asks His disciples to pray with Him. If you don’t have a lot of time, or if you find an hour is too long to stay focused, try going for 15-20 minutes. You will be amazed to find that even this brief break in your day can refresh your soul!
As we reflect on today’s Mass readings, especially Judas’ betrayal of Jesus, let us search our own lives to identify weaknesses or temptations that may cause us to betray Our Lord if we are not careful.
Readings for Tuesday:
Ps 71:1-2, 3-4a, 5ab-6ab,
15 and 17
Jn 13:21-33, 36-38
