This is a day to give thanks. Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist. He begins by washing the feet of his apostles; he is humble and teaches us the way to love by serving others. Then, although Jesus knows that Judas is going to betray Him, He still thinks of a way to stay with us by giving us the Eucharist and telling His apostles to continue to do this in memory of Him. He then tells them "Do not let your hearts be troubled" and goes on to tell them that He goes to prepare a place for them. This is such a special moment in the life of Jesus and in the lives of every one of us. Let us spend it with Jesus in thanksgiving, love, and asking for the grace to bear fruit that will remain.
