The Stations of the Cross will be continued tomorrow. Holy Thursday is such a gift to us. Jesus began by washing the feet of his disciples and thus giving us an example of how we are to serve one another with love. Then Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist. He took bread and wine and changed it into His own body and blood so that he could continue to be present to us through all the ages. He waits for us to come to receive Him in the Eucharist; He gave those present at this last supper the grace to go and do this in remembrance of Jesus. We can go visit Jesus in a special way whenever we go to a Catholic church or chapel where there is a tabernacle with a sanctuary lamp burning to indicate that Jesus is present in the Eucharist. What a gift we have!
Let us spend time in adoration after the Holy Thursday services tonight so we may be with Jesus to thank Him for His gift to us as well as stay with Him for it is on this same night that He will suffer the agony in the garden, the betrayal of Judas, and the abandonment of his friends.
