Daily homily thoughts, 4/12

Today, Wednesday of Holy Week, we call Spy Wednesday. It is the day when Judas spies for a way to hand Jesus over. He turns his back on God for 30 pieces of silver. Esau in the Old Testament turns his back on God for a meal. Many turn their backs on God nowadays, too. Some for a football game, preferring to watch a game than attend Holy Mass on a Sunday. Some turn their backs on God because they don’t want to wait for the annulment, and others for pornography or drugs or, like Judas, money. We must be very careful.
