Theme: Do this in memory of me

My brothers and sisters in Christ, in order to prepare ourselves to commemorate the glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ on Easter Day, today, we are celebrating Holy Thursday.

This Feast solemnly commemorates the institution of the Holy Eucharist. During the history of the Holy Catholic Church, this special Feast has been associated with the reconciliation of penitents, the consecration of the holy oils, the washing of the feet, the commemoration of the Blessed Eucharist and Institution of Ministerial Priesthood. Holy Thursday is the night on which our Lord Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples. What went through their mind on that night, we will never know. We can only imagine. What we do know is that Jesus knew that His hour had come to depart from the world and to go to the Father.

Theme: The Eucharist is our life

In our village there was a 6-year-old boy named Kana who refused to go to school. Each day, despite his protests, his mother walked him to school, but as soon as she left him, he ran back home only to have his mother bring him back to the school once again. This scenario played itself out for several days, with Kana continuing to refuse to stay in school and his parents refusing to acquiesce to his desires. No inducement or threat could convince Kana to change his mind. Finally, in desperation, the boy’s parents took him to their Catechist, who said, ‘If the boy won’t listen to words, bring him to me.’ When the parents brought their son to the Catechist, he said not a word. He simply picked up the boy and held him to his heart for a long time. Then, without speaking a word, he set him down. What words alone could not accomplish, a silent embrace did. Not only did Kana go to school willingly, he went on to become a great scholar and a priest.

Pope Francis has assured us catholics and Christians that we are not orphaned for the church is our mother. He said this while speaking to tens of thousands gathered in the St. Peters’s square for the weekly General Audience to here the Matrenal nature of the church.

He called her “a mother” who gives us “life in Christ,” and reminded the faithful she will never leave them “orphaned.”

 The five precepts of the church (church laws) are set in the context of a moral life bound to and nourished by liturgical life. The obligatory character of these positive laws decreed by the pastoral authorities is meant to guarantee to the faithful the very necessary minimum in the spirit of prayer and moral effort, in the growth in love of God and neighbor. In other words they help us to maintain a very necessary minimum in the spirit of prayer and growth in the love of God and Neighbour.
