Holy Thursday: God's Gift of Love

Chapter Talks

In today’s liturgy we behold Jesus’ self-gift in the washing of the feet ritual and in the Eucharist where Jesus offers his body and his blood for the world. Self-giving is an act of agape: unconditional love, the highest form, the deepest form of love…This is the diptych of today’s two rituals and of what we will be participating in.

OF YOU MY HEART HAS SPOKEN: SEEK HIS FACE. IT IS YOUR FACE, O LORD, THAT I SEEK; HIDE NOT YOUR FACE FROM ME.
(Entrance Antiphon, Mass)

Someone recently told me that he prayed for me. His prayer is that I do whatever the Lord asks of me as I live out my vocation in this particular place. Recalling that heart-warming gesture, today's transfigured Word encourages me, encourages us all, in this way: Rise, and do not be afraid (Mt 17:7).
