Holy Wednesday – A Reflection

April 17, 2019

One of you will betray me

Lord, is it I?

Lord, is it I?

The question rang out around the table

Is it one who’s feet you just washed?

Lord, is it I?

Is it one who just broke bread with you?

Lord, is it I?

Lord, you knew how quickly the crowd would change

From shouts of Hosanna!

To shouts of Crucify Him!

Lord, is it I?

As I reflect on today’s passage from John’s Gospel, these thoughts keep flowing from my head and heart.

Lord, is it I?

Then I realize, yes it is

So many times I have betrayed you

So many times I have ignored you

So many times I have forgotten you

Lord, it is I

Kyrie Eleison

Christe Eleison

Kyrie Eleison

And then, he looked at me with love in his eyes… you have been forgiven and restored… feed my sheep, Padre, feed my sheep

This song by Mr Mister was a constant companion my last year of Seminary… it is even more profound today… Kyrie

Lord have mercy along the road that we must travel
