As we approach Holy Week, we see that the conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders continues to escalate. And when the high priest Caiaphas spoke the prophecy, “It is better that one man die than for the whole nation to perish,” he was considering a much bigger picture than his fellow leaders in the Sanhedrin, who seemed more concerned that Jesus’ words and mighty acts would undermine their credibility before the people. God desires our good. God knows what he is doing. And God does not need our permission to do the things that God does. If we can recognize our myopia, our lack of imagination; if we can place our trust in God, we will have nothing to fear.
This mass was offered for the repose of +Tom Foley.
