The Disciples’ Diary

The Arrest of Christ by Giotto di Bondone

The Arrest of Christ by Giotto di Bondone

As we hear the accounts of Jesus’ Passion throughout the Holy Week liturgies, we may find ourselves contemplating the other characters involved in the events described to us.  Fr Bill MacCurtain SJ  from Farm Street Church in London, imagines the personal journeys of two of the disciples: Simon Peter, who was desperate to stay with Jesus; and Judas, who betrayed him.

How did Peter learn of God’s saving love through his confusing and frustrating relationship with Jesus? And might Judas have felt that he was the one betrayed?  To read Fr Bill's reflection on Thinking Faith see: www.thinkingfaith.org/articles/20100401_2.htm
