The Week of betrayal, denials and treachery.

"Do not leave me to the will of my foes, O Lord, for false witnesses rise up against me and they breathe out violence." (Cf Psalm 27: 12).

Tuesday in Holy Week 2019. Theme of betrayal, denials and treachery. Jesus is not a stranger to this experience. This became the experience of Peter and Paul and all the saints. It is the constant experience of the Church. If you are diligently following Christ, you will experience betrayal, denials and treachery.

"God did not spare his own Son,
but handed him over for us all." (Romans 8: 32).

God did not spare His own Son Jesus so that we shall have eternal life. God did not spare Peter, Paul, Popes, Mother St Teresa, Mother Angelica, Martin Luther King, etc.

We have one Savior: Jesus.
One means of salvation: Cross.

"Glory and praise to you, O Christ!
Hail to you, our King!
Obedient to the Father, you were led to your crucifixion as a meek lamb is led to the slaughter.
Glory and praise to you, O Christ!" (Gospel Acclamation).
