St. John Climacus
"Mom, where are you going?" Our little ones always want to be with us. Even when they are bigger, sometimes you have to remind them, where I am going, you can't come. You know, places like the shower. That's what I'm reminded of by today's gospel. The apostles wanted to spend every moment with Christ; they wanted to follow him everywhere. Do you have that same drive to follow Christ and be in his presence always?
One more thing: Even though Jesus knew what was going to happen, he still handed Judas the morsel. He loved you so much. He loves your children that much too. Follow him always.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, as I walk with you this week through your passion, I am reminded of just how much you love me. Thank you for dying for me. Thank you for my salvation. Keep me by your side always. In your name I pray, Amen.
