April 17, 2018 – Wednesday in Holy Week – “Spy” Wednesday Privileged Ferial Day
MEDITATION ON “SPY” WEDNESDAY:
Today is known as “Spy Wednesday,” in remembrance of the traitorous deed of Judas Iscariot. The Introit gives us a foretaste of what is to come after the passion and death of our Lord: “That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth” (Philippians 2:10/DRV). But immediately juxtaposed to this acknowledgment of divine glory is the other side of the equation. This is the refrain that will be repeated at every Hour of the Divine Office beginning tomorrow: “He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:8/DRV).
RECOMMENDED SACRED MUSIC:
Gregorian Chant of Wednesday of Holy Week
Johann Sebastian Bach’s Lukas Passion [BWV 246]
