Maundy Thursday – the Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Maundy Thursday – the Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Fr Sean Hall, Hexham and Newcastle diocese, 08/04/2020

Love is the theme that links our three Readings this evening: God’s love for the People of Israel in setting them free from slavery in Egypt at the Passover; The love shown by Jesus sharing his Body and Blood in St Paul’s account of the Last Supper; and Jesus’ example of love at the same Supper by becoming the lowliest of slaves washing the feet of his disciples. The tradition of washing feet that often follows the Reading of the Gospel in our churches is usually accompanied by music. One of the most poignant pieces is the Taize Chant (actually used in the text of this Mass) Ubi Caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. (Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there). What a wonderful thought for us all to remember at this time of isolation!
