Today will be like no other Holy Thursday



Holy Thursday


“Anyone familiar with wheat and grapes knows that the story of bread and wine is indeed a story of life and death. How wise of Jesus to use such already sacred signs to continue his presence among us….”

– Macrina Wiederkehr osb


Today will be like no other Holy Thursday for so many of us who cannot attend the evening Eucharist in our own parishes and churches. Together though, we can gather as the Church of the World celebrating the eucharist of our lives and our planet with one another and with Christ during this holy time. In all our breaking and pouring, our hopes and fears, our dying and rising, may we be one this day, this night with Christ and with each other.
“Do this in memory of me”, he said…and we do!
