Daily Readings & Reflections

April 7 2020 reflection

 

In the Gospel reading for today, Jesus, even though he gave everything he could for three years, preaching the good news to his disciples, is going to be betrayed by one of His disciples.  How many times have we encountered hostility when we try to do something good?  Is our reaction to through in the towel or to persevere?  Jesus could have said, I have had it with you guys but, instead, he continued down the path of sacrifice which will lead Him to the cross this Friday.  He continued to love them and for those who stayed, He promised that He would never leave them alone. 

Lord, may we be like you have the endurance and courage to continue on the course toward holiness no matter what is thrown in our way.  May we be confident that even during these times. you will never leave us alone.
