For us Christians, Holy Thursday, along with the day Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, is also the day Judas betrayed his friend, Jesus.

When I saw the following five-minute video, it presented a new slant in the events of Holy Thursday. It reminded me of the times I had betrayed myself and immediately I thought of Step 4, “Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.”

Whether at an Al-Anon meeting or a Life Recovery meeting the subtle reinforcement of a forgiving Higher Power carries me through life one day at a time.

My prayer is you take the time to watch the video, forgive yourself and accept the compassionate mercy of your Higher Power.
