John 11:47-50; Matthew 26:57-68
Lord Jesus Christ – excommunicated by a priest - pour out your compassion on all
who follow the way of expediency
who make peace by denying their principles
who are left confused by you
who long to trust you as Christ but fear the consequences
Forgive the people who bear your name who continue the mistakes of Caiaphas
And by your compassion transform us all. Amen.
