Holy Thursday 2019
St. Paul reminds us in the Epistle not to receive the Body of Christ unworthily. It is a betrayal and a lie to use a sign of love as one of hatred the way Judas did with his kiss. The Church interrupts her time of penance and sorrow to express her joy over the gifts of the Holy Eucharist, the Mass and sacred priesthood. Christ thought these important enough to shed His Blood to give them to us. We must love these precious treasures as much as possible and renew our love and dedication to them.
