Tonight, at the Mass of the Lord's Supper, during the reading of the Gospel, I was struck, not for the first time, by the person of Judas Iscariot. Maybe this arose from going to confession just before Mass. Anyway, as I thought about Judas, I remembered 24-7 Prayer's Anagnorisis series from last Lent, especially Andy Freeman's videos on Judas (you can watch them all here). but especially the final video.
This traitor, too, is loved. I pray to live in gratitude for this, which means living in the awareness, always, that I am loved with an everlasting love, a love that is stronger than death. Thank you, Jesus.
