Is 50:4-9a; Ps 69; Mt 26:14-25

"Surely it is not I, Rabbi?" He answered, "You have said so."
Having already received the 30 pieces of silver and now just looking for the opportune time to hand Jesus over, Judas smugly pretends to have no knowledge of the traitorous plot. His guilt is obvious. Yet he keeps pretending. Many of us have a similarly sketchy relationship with the truth. Like Judas, we even refuse to admit when we’ve clearly been found out. We dig deeper and deeper to bury our offenses, rather than owning our wrongdoing and facing the consequences. No matter how hard we try to mask our deception, however, we can’t hide our dishonesty from Jesus. He sees through our lies and knows our hearts. He doesn’t accuse. He simply waits for us to acknowledge the truth.
Understanding and all knowing Lord, give me the grace to admit my faults, lies, and betrayal.
