What is Spy Wednesday?

You may have never heard of the name Spy Wednesday.  It is the day before Holy Thursday, and with the Gospel reading from John 12, we remember Judas’ betrayal of his friend Jesus. We hear him say, “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you.”

So as we remember this betrayal, we can imagine what that treachery felt like to Jesus.
We might also remember times we have felt betrayed or betrayed others.
We can hold in prayer those who are experiencing the pain of betrayal this day.

And most importantly, we can remember the forgiveness that God offers all of us.

On this Spy Wednesday, I look out my window at the trees in bloom and am reminded of the Hope of Sunday.
