Holy Thursday 2020, the Beginning of the Triduum.


"The Lord Jesus, on the night He was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood." Do this in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11: 23 - 25)

Thursday 9th April 2020, Thursday of Holy Week (Holy Thursday) - the Beginning of Easter Triduum.

We pray to the Eternal Father that we may experience the effects of the salvation which is pledged to us by these mysteries.

"At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'" (CCC 1323).

We receive new life through the gift of the Body and Blood of Jesus. May we find full contentment in this meal.
