“God will always have the last word”

Daily Reflection- Monday, April 6th, 2020

Yesterday, on Palm Sunday, we commemorated Jesus’ triumphant entry into the city of Jerusalem as King, but only to be betrayed by Judas. Apparently, the betrayal, the passion and death of Jesus seemed but a humiliating defeat. But appearances can be deceiving. Just like we often struggle to see clearly through the fog of pain, toil, loss or sin.

In today’s Gospel Reading(John, 12:1-11), Mary breaks through the fog. She recognizes the truth about Jesus. In her anointing, she not only foreshadows the burial of Jesus on Good Friday, but ultimately, the crowning victory of Jesus Christ the King, on Easter Sunday morning.Jacob_Andries_Beschey_-_Maria_Magdalene_washing_the_feet_of_Christ

As we journey through the Holy Week, let us pray for the grace to see clearly not only the cross, but also the glory of the resurrection. That is to say; sin, pain and the darkness of this world will not have the last word, but God, always will. AMEN.

Peace be with you!
