Judas lives on.
A blessed Holy Thursday to you, coming from our 10th-annual retreat, the first 8 at sea in what we creatively called "The Retreat at Sea" — and these last two on land, owing to the COVID scamdemic.
We're in Frisco, Texas, just outside Dallas, with close to two hundred Catholics who have traveled here to be on retreat — a time to collect and be with Our Lord and away from the regular concerns of the world. And while the regular concerns of the world can be safely laid aside for a few days, they do not go away. We all know they are just beyond the borders of this retreat.
Holy Thursday, always a celebration of the priesthood and the Holy Eucharist, is also a day where we recall the beginning of Our Lord's Passion, set in motion by the betrayal of Judas Iscariot. Always important to keep in mind — his treachery unfolded at the Last Supper, during one of the most intimate moments Our Lord had with His Apostles.
While the events unfolded in the Upper Room, they began a year earlier in Capernaum, where Judas first denied Our Lord's Eucharistic self-revelation. In very clear terms now, Judas denied and betrayed Our Lord specifically because of the teaching of the Real Presence.
He was a thief, true. But his thievery was only a prelude to his treachery — a greasing of the skids, if you will, an apostolic denial of the source and summit of the Faith. While it would be splendid if this had only happened just once, the truth is, we see this exact same denial and betrayal on the part of many successors of the Apostles today.
Judas loved wealth and the power it brings with it, even to the point of stealing it. Those actions committed him to a prison of his own corruption and set the stage for his betrayal. In the Gospel account of the anointing of Our Lord's feet at Bethany (where Judas self-righteously objects to "wasting" such expensive ointment), Our Lord upbraids Judas, telling him to leave the woman alone who had anointed Him.
