Prayer for April 15, 2022

On this day when we remember Christ’s ultimate sacrifice for us, help us to remember all that fateful day entailed. We know of the betrayal of Judas, how Peter denied him three times, and how Herod, Pilate and the people were all complicit in sending Christ to the Cross. We remember also Jesus calling for the disciple he loved to become for his mother his new son. Help us when we are faced with times where the crowd may be pushing people to do what is wrong to remember that Christ’s sacrifice and our redemption means we are a people called to love one another. Let us remember the times when we have felt as alone as the disciples. May we contemplate and remember those who have made sacrifices and make sacrifices for us and be grateful. Amen
