(taken from “The Devotion to the Sacred Heart” by Fr. John Croiset, S.J)

And Judas, coming to Jesus, said; Hail, Rabbi. And he kissed him. And Jesus said to him: Friend, whereto art thou come?”(Matt. 26:48-49). “Judas, dost thou betray the Son of man with a kiss?” (Luke 22:48).

It is very hard to bear, when an ungrateful person adds hypocrisy to malice, when he tries to deceive us by an exterior show of friendship, when in public he makes use of familiarity and friendship to destroy us. My Divine Saviour, what must by Thy sentiments at seeing this great number of Christians whom Thou dost invite so cordially to Thy banquet, whom Thou dost admit with so much love to Thy table! Thou dost thereby give them a testimony of Thy extreme love; on their part, they perform an act which is in itself a visible mark of the tender love which they have for Thee; but to how many of them couldst Thou not say: “Friend, whereto art thou come? Dost thou betray Me with a kiss?’’

To how many impure souls has Thou delivered Thyself? To how many hearts sullied by a thousand vices? How many sacrileges have been committed under this false appearance of piety? And shall I be always insensible to all this?
