Lent calendar prayer and reflection for 11 April

 Jesus was troubled in spirit. “My little children, I shall not be with you much longer.”

John 13: 21-33, 36-38
Saint John tells us that “Jesus was troubled in spirit” whilst he was at supper with his disciples. He knows Judas is about to betray him. And Jesus is about to leave all of his friends, whom he loves and cares for deeply. I can’t help but feel compassion for Jesus as he sits at the table.


God of all, you nurture, protect and guide us. All life springs from you. In your mercy, forgive us the times we deny you our thanks for all that you give us. Amen.
