Matthew 26: 14-25

Can we simply condemn Judas and align ourselves with the women disciples who do not abandon Jesus? Or must we realize that the situation of Judas is all too familiar to us too? When have I found myself on the wrong road and thought stubbornly that I could not turn back? When have I acted against my conscience in order to save face with those in power? We can all cry out with the psalm, “Lord, in your great love, answer me.” Is it possible that, at the last minute, Judas uttered this cry?
