I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflections for March 27, Wednesday in Holy Week, Matthew 26:14-25

My Reflections:
Who was the man who opened his house for Jesus and his apostles? We don’t know, what we are certain about him is he was gracious and kind enough to offer his house to Jesus. There was no ulterior motive when he allowed them to use his house for their Passover remembrance.

Judas was with Jesus and his fellow apostles but he was not there to be in communion with them. He was with them because he was planning something sinister, none other than the betrayal of Jesus. 

On this Wednesday of Holy Week let us reflect on our motives when we give help. Do we do it with the purest of intentions? Or we give help because we expect something in return. How about when we help the church? Do we help because we really desire to help? Or we help because we want something in return from God.

Let us help without expecting anything in return… let us always desire the company of Jesus out of our great love and devotion to Him. …
