Holy Thursday

Holy Thursday
------------------


The Mass of Holy Thursday commemorates three things.


(1) Institution of the Eucharist (where bread and wine are changed into Jesus' Body and Blood).

(2) Institution of the priesthood (where Jesus gives the ordained priest the power to change bread and wine into Jesus' Body and Blood, so we have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for all time).

(3) Institution of the new commandment to love (I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another - John 13:34)
