Holy Thursday

Francesco Fontebasso - Last Supper

Now before the festival of the Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart from this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end (St John 13:1)

At the Last Supper. when Jesus knew his disciples' hearts burned with devoted love after he had just given himself to them through the unfathomable mystery of the Eucharist, this gentle Saviour gave them a new commandment, ....Love one another just as I have loved you (St Therese, The Story of a Soul).
