Spy Wednesday of Holy Week

We are healed by His bruises! O heavenly Physician, who takes upon Himself the sufferings of those He comes to cure! –Abbot Gueranger O.S.B.

This is the day Judas made the bargain with the high priest to betray Christ for 30 pieces of silver.

Traditionally, we call it Spy Wednesday, as Judas began to look for ways to turn Jesus into the authorities, setting into motion Christ’s crucifixion. It is the day we begin pondering the Sacred Triduum that begins on Holy Thursday and leads us into Good Friday and finally Holy Saturday.

If you like to ponder Holy Week with music as part of your prayer routine:

  • This is a good playlist on Spotify. 
  • Our own monks of St. Meinrad has a moving soundtrack for Lent.

Or Listen to Lent at Ephesus by the Benedictines of Mary
