Spy Wednesday

Spy Wednesday Mass at FSSP Seattle

We are just one day away from the commencement of the Sacred Triduum, which comprises the most
sacred days in the liturgical calendar. This day is called “Spy” Wednesday because it was at this time that Judas made his evil bargain with the high priests and began to seek out an opportunity to betray Our Lord. In essence, a “spy” was in the midst of the apostles.

The Epistle for this day is one of the most well-known Old Testament prophecies concerning Our Lord’s Passion: the beautiful passage from Isaiah describing the sufferings of the Man of Sorrows, Who bore our infirmities and carried our sins.

Despised and the most abject of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with infirmity; and His look was as it were hidden and despised, whereupon we esteemed Him not. Surely He hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows: and we have thought Him as it were a leper, and as one struck by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our iniquities, He was bruised for our sins; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His bruises we are healed.

– Isaiah 53:3-5
