Wednesday was a dark, quiet day during Holy Week… Part 4 of my series on Holy Week events is now online as a continuation of the series on Holy Week. If you missed the first installments, it’s not too late to catch up with the introduction and Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. Basically these are little more than the story and an insight or two given for reflection, and not a major treatise of any kind.
Hopefully some are finding these helpful… They are not based on the Lectionary at all, just my reading and harmonization of the Gospels (more on the origin of the series in the introduction). I like to go through the whole account myself each year as a way of focusing on all of the events leading up to and surrounding Easter. Through reflection on the events, additional insight normally comes to deepen my understanding. Today’s insight has to do with the impairment of Judas’ perception by greed.
