Palm Sunday

April 17, 2011

THE SPAN BETWEEN JUDAS AND PETER

Most of us think of Judas and Peter as opposites, but not always for the right reason.

It is not sinfulness and holiness that mark them as different, but the inability and ability to accept forgiveness for their sins.

Judas is marked by betrayal; Peter by denial – both equally as great and so very much the same.  However, Peter found forgiveness while Judas did not.

This week, we are called to remember that the Passion of Christ is all about forgiveness and so we must find in ourselves such an ability to accept what Jesus offers.

NOTE:  There are two parts two today’s entry:  one before and one after the Gospel.
