Holy Thursday 2022: The Eucharist, the Priesthood, and Jesus’s Hour

April 15th, 2022

In the unique liturgy of Holy Thursday, the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, our readings focus on the two Sacraments instituted at the Last Supper: the Eucharist and the Priesthood. The ritual washing of the feet reminds us that Jesus wants his priests—and all of his followers—to use whatever position they have to serve their brother and sister.

Jesus’s hour has come, let us wait and keep watch with him.
