Holy Wednesday (Spy Wednesday)

This image of Judas the betrayer restraining the soldiers while Jesus prays recalls these words by Bishop Fulton J. Sheen:
Judas, if true love never ceases, 
how could you, my friend, have come to this?
To sell me for thirty silver pieces, 
betray me with a kiss?
Judas, remember what I've taught you; 
do not despair while hanging on that rope.
It is because you sinned that I have sought you; 
I came to give you hope.
Judas, let's pray and hang together, 
you in your halter, I upon my hill.
Dear friend, even if you loved me never, 
you know I love you still.
