Maundy Thursday, 9 April 2020
Today we enter the Paschal Triduum, or Great Three Days, the most holy, solemn days in the Christian liturgical calendar. If we open our hearts and let the Liturgy, actions and words sink into our hearts, it can be life-transforming.
Beginning on Maundy Thursday, Jesus enters into the final conflict with darkness which includes His betrayal, arrest, scourging and ultimately His death on the cross. On this evening, our Lord does and leaves with His disciples and us several important things:
The institution of the Lord’s Supper
The New Commandment
A call to serve
