On Wednesday of Holy Week, we recall Judas’ betrayal of Jesus. It was on Wednesday that Judas told the high priest when Jesus would be in a place that he could be more easily arrested. In exchange Judas was given 30 pieces of silver.
Please forgive us, Jesus, whenever we betray you. Most of all, we pray and seek your forgiveness and healing O Lord from this grave sin of betrayal for we do not only do it to you but to those most dearest to us, our family and friends whom we hurt whenever we hand them over to troubles and miseries, to grief and tears.

In Your name we pray,
