Our Lenten Journey, March 27, 2018


Today’s Readings from the USCCB:
• • •
“Judas became the spokesman of all those who through the centuries would protest the ornamentation of the Christian cult and would feel that, when the best of gold and jewels were given to the God Who made them, there was some slight made to the poor – not because they were interested in the poor, but because they were envious of that wealth.”
― Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
“Judas was a great luminary, he knew God’s will, but he was a traitor.”
― Thomas Watson
“Let’s think of that moment when a woman washed the feet of Jesus with the nard, so expensive: it is a religious moment, a moment of gratitude, a moment of love. And he [Judas] stands apart with bitter criticism: ‘But this could have been used for the poor!’ This is the first reference that I have found, in the Gospel, to poverty as an ideology. The ideologue does not know what love is, because he does nt know how to give himself.”
― Pope Francis
“For you will certainly carry out God’s purpose, however you act, but it makes a difference to you whether you serve like Judas or like John.”
—C.S. Lewis
