The Gospel from today’s Mass (John 13:21-33; 36-39), Jesus demonstrates both His Omniscience and abounding patience.  An excerpt:

[37] Peter said to him, “Lord, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” [38] Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, the cock will not crow, till you have denied me three times.

Christ, in just a few short words, demonstrates why He is God and we are not.  Consider:

Jesus demonstrates His omniscience by predicting the precise details of Peter’s betrayal.  And Jesus, because He is Divine, can be Divinely patient with the well-intentioned, but weak Peter.

Praise Jesus Christ that He is patient.  We all need Christ’s patience with our own promises and failures.

Confess your sins, praying for forgiveness during this Holy Week.
