Today in Holy Thursday
It is a quiet day and I am cooking the Holy Thursday dinner but there will only be our community for prayer and dinner and then we will go together to the evening Liturgy. I think of Jesus longing to give Himself to us because He loves us. I am praying over John's Gospel which has Jesus revealing so much to us in discourse to his chosen ones at the Last Supper. He talks to them about where he is going, about how he will prepare a place for them, about the Holy Spirit who will come and be their advocate, about his Father, who loves him...Jesus knows how weak we are and he prepares for his going by leaving us the gift of himself in the Eucharist. He is with us in a special way and we can only bow down in adoration and thank Him for his great gift of love in giving us himself.
