Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday

April 14

Maundy ThursdayRejoice with us this Holy Week in a celebratory expression, “Thank God it’s Thursday!” This Thursday is Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday. We celebrate the tremendous love God expressed for all of humanity in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Holy Thursday marks our remembrance of the Last Supper, Jesus’ last meal with the disciples prior to the crucifixion. While we remember the tremendous sacrifice Jesus made for us, on Holy Thursday we celebrate the tremendous gift Jesus bequeaths us. Jesus lives in us! Something totally wonderful, something awesomely powerful, something absolutely righteous lives inside us. Maundy Thursday Communion is a reminder that the world cannot bury us under debt, despair, pain and injustice, because Jesus lives in us. Each time we eat the bread of life and drink the cup of salvation we take more of Jesus into to us. For this we say, “Thank God it’s Holy Thursday!”
