Holy Thursday Reflection and Video

"On Holy Thursday, the night before he died, the Lord Jesus made some startling changes in the ritual of the Passover meal. Instead of being content with the traditional Jewish table blessing over the bread, Jesus proclaimed “take and eat for this is my body.” Over the third cup of wine, known as the cup of blessing, he said “take and drink for this is my blood.” Then he commanded the disciples “do this in memory of me.”
Obedient to the wishes of the savior, we remember and reenact this solemn moment in a special way each Holy Thursday, but more frequently in every Mass. Indeed the Catholic Church teaches that in the Eucharist, the communion wafer and the altar wine are transformed and really become the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Have you ever met anyone who has found this Catholic doctrine to be a bit hard to take?"

Read more from Holy Thursday The Eucharist: The Body of Christ? by Marcellino D'Ambrosio, PhD from Crossroads Initiative HERE. 

I shared this video last year and wanted to repost it as I think it is so beautiful and goes so well with the above Holy Thursday reflection!  Enjoy the music, lyrics, and images as we remember Jesus Christ's passion, death, and resurrection during Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and rejoice together when Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday!
