CWN Editor's Note: At a Mass celebrated in the chapel of Domus Sanctae Marthae on April 8 (video), Pope Francis preached on Matthew 26:14-25, the Gospel reading of the day. As he did in 2016, the Pope referred to Don Primo Mazzolari’s 1958 homily on Judas and to the depiction of Judas at the basilica in Vèzelay, France. The Pope invited those watching the Mass to pray the act of spiritual communion by Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val (1865-1930). The Mass concluded with adoration and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament and the chanting of the Ave Regina Caelorum.
