There has been a lot of talk recently about Judas, and today being Holy Wednesday the reading is about Judas. I don't know if history has played Judas in a bad light or not. Maybe he betrayed Jesus for money. Maybe he acted on orders from Christ himself. But this much I know with every fiber of my being: The saving grace of God was open to Judas as much as it is open to me now. Be it heaven of hell for Judas is not the point. The point is that Jesus--love incarnate--loved Judas, loves me, and loves you. Period. End. Full Stop!
