Jesus’ Betrayal And Arrest


Extract

Judas betrayed Jesus by telling the soldiers where to find Him and how to identify Him, the one I kiss, he said.

When the soldiers arrived at the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus said to them, “Who are you looking for?” They replied, “Jesus the Nazarene”. He said, “I am he”. (John 18:4-5)

ThoughtsThought

Jesus made no attempt to avoid his arrest. “Not my will, but yours be done; they were the words he spoke to his Father”. (Luke 22:42)

ReflectionsReflection

Lord Jesus, for the conversion of mankind and my sins you accepted torture and death. Then you breathed your last saying, “It is completed … and gave up [your] spirit”. (John 19:30)

Prayer: Holy Spirit

Most Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You.
Enlighten me, guide me, comfort me, console me.
I promise to submit myself to all You desire of me,
And permit all You wish to happen to me.
Give me Your help, tell me what to do.
Most Holy Spirit, bring peace to my world. Amen.
