“Stay here with me, remain here with me, watch and pray”
Tonight we commemorate the night on which Jesus instituted the meal by which we remember him. The attached liturgy for holy communion has its roots in the Passover meal where children are invited to ask questions about why this meal of all meals is celebrated, and where the Prayer of Thanksgiving over the gifts provides a response.
I was greatly inspired by Bishop Paul’s reflection for today and have included his words as a sermon.
And our thanks as a parish to Val for the beautiful prayers for Maundy Thursday.
Every blessing in Holy Week
