A Hand in the Dish.

Thursday 28 January

Matthew 26: 17-35 was the reading at morning prayer the other day. We heard the account from the last supper when Jesus pointed out the one to betray him was the one who dipped the bread in the bowl. Then Judas name is mentioned and we all tend to nod and recognise the “bad ‘un”.

And then one of those moments of awareness.

The account goes on to tell of Jesus  predicting the abandonment by all the disciples. Did not they all dip bread with him, weren’t all of them betrayers of trust?

We all look for the Judas without recognising our hand in the dish.
