Thursday 9th April 2020
Today, on Maundy Thursday, we recall the Passover Meal that Jesus shared with his Disciples on the night before he was put to death. We reflect upon the intimate connection between the two great themes; Eucharist, and service and how, as Catholics, we require both. We cannot have one without the other.
Jesus shows this by his actions of washing his disciples’ feet – the ultimate display of humility, setting them an example to follow.
The words spoken by Jesus are meant for us all this Maundy Thursday; they are an invitation for us to follow in the Lord’s example of loving service.
We are invited to continue on our walk with the Lord on the final steps of his earthly journey.
Please take a look at our Homily and Bidding Prayers for this Thursday.
