Today is Maundy Thursday, the day the Church traditionally remembers Christ’s Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist.
And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover. When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve […] Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” (Matthew 26:19-20, 26-29)
One of my favorite communion songs is Matt Maher’s “Remembrance.” Enjoy!
