God has given me a voice, that I may know how to sustain with a word those who are weary.

The crass betrayal by Judas has to resonate with each of us as we review our own past weaknesses and infidelities. Money may not be in the failing, but faults are there that remove us from the love that Jesus taught and lived. Lent is a good time to make amends in active ways.

Simple things like turning off the TV and internet, not hooking into the latest political event, not eyeballing the sports match/results, are choices for all of us. Taking quiet time, allows us to respect our in-built sensibility and it follows that we can take time with someone who needs a friendly presence, engaged listening.

And most of all, we can find a place to read and ponder the above words of Isaiah. We have those gifts to share this Easter.
