There are two questions we all must face on Spy Wednesday

“Who do you say I am?” – Jesus of Nazareth

“What will you give me to betray him?” – Judas Iscariot

Both are diagnostics of our deepest hearts.  Both should make us tremble.  They open up to us the reality that the universe is not a hobbit hole, but that every road leads, sooner or later, to heaven or hell.

    “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,” [Bilbo] used to say. “You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

    Not sure which thread would be best to share this: PrayTell, a liturgy blog I follow, shared a video of the Palm Sunday liturgy of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopalian parish in NYC. The chanting of the Passion narrative is astounding, maybe the most beautiful I’ve ever heard. It starts at about 20:18. I hope that you and your readers are as moved as I was.

    This reminds me of this exerpt from “The way of the pilgrim”, the way each of our sins betrays God, and we are willing to do it for so little gain. What are our beliefs towards God, truly, then?
