Holy Thursday: Unconditional Love

icon"The hour had come...." (Jn 13:1)

The hour of Easter Triduum begins on Holy Thursday with the Lord's Supper that celebrates the paschal event and the newness of life which flows from the crucified, dying and risen Christ.

Holy Thursday prepares us to remember the twofold of Jesus Christ giving himself: to His friends and disciples, His Church, in the Sacrament of His body and blood, and to His enemies, to die on the cross for the life of the world. We are being invited to be present with Jesus in a quiet way, in solidarity with our present world affected by COVID-19 pandemic.

In the Last Supper, Jesus teaches us the new commandment, "Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another." (Jn 13:34) He also reminds us, "No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you." (Jn 15:13-14)

Let the scene of the Last Supper unfold when you read John 13:1-15, or John chapters 13-17.
Can you allow Jesus to wash your feet... Imagine Him looking at you, pouring water and drying your feet... Imagine He speaks to you, like a trusted friend... Share with Him your anxiety, sadness, and anguish... Feel His loving presence, acceptance and unconditional love for you...
