Maundy Thursday

The Last Supper by Peter Paul Rubens

Today marks the beginning of the Triduum (the 3 liturgical days of our church year) and God’s eschatological plan of salvation for us. His unconditional agape love for us from the washing of the feet of His disciples to the institution of the Eucharist marks that great moment where He gives us Himself in the form of bread & wine becoming truly present. Jesus is the true manna come down from heaven (Jn. 6:33-35).

Today, let us recall that everlasting gift that Jesus gives in this great agape meal as we enter into recalling His paschal mystery. The start of this holy liturgical celebration that is brought to fulfillment today with a new command or “mandatum novum.” Jesus asks us to do this act in memory of Him for this sacred liturgy shows us that He is always present in the gift of the Eucharistic meal we will share together that gives our soul true nourishment. Come to the banquet of life and love one another as He has loved you.

Our call to mission as being made in the image and likeness of God is two-fold: to have authentic relationships with our fellow man, and to have an authentic personal encounter with our living God through His Son Jesus Christ who is, who was and who will always be. Let us not bicker, spew hate, or worry about trivial matters when we can become better images of our self to walk humbly with our loving God.
