John's Gospel today shows the Lord with a troubled heart as he announces that both Judas and Peter will deny him.  In the same meal where the Christ left us the Eucharist he also acknowledges the weakness of his own disciples.  It begs the question: When have we denied the Lord in our lives?  When have we turned away from Jesus in a moment of temptation?  May this Holy Week renew our faith and help us return to the one who died and rose that we might have a path that leads out of sin into newness of life.
