Walking With The Father

Don't throw away your Lenten gains (Matthew 26 14-26)

  • Father Matthew looked into how much the 30 pieces of silver was really worth, which tempted Judas to betray Jesus. On the low end it was worth around 2 days of wages, and on the high end it was worth 48 days of wages for a Roman centurion. Looking back at these 40 days of Lent, let's not get too prideful of what we have accomplished, and let's not be tempted to fall back into the same attachments we gave up during Lent, such as those temptations that come through the senses. We need to know what our areas of temptation are, so that we don't "let it all go" just because it will be Easter.
