      5. Maundy Thursday

      The word "Maundy" comes from the Latin word for commandment (mandatum),
      which Jesus talked about when he told his disciples that he was leaving
      them "a new commandment," that they "love one another." There were
      probably so many things going on in the disciples' minds in that upper
      room where they had their last supper together, including fear and
      bewilderment from Jesus telling them that someone in that very room
      would betray him. ...

      6. Featured: Passover/ Pes'ho/ Holy Last Supper

      The Holy Last Supper encourages us to look back with love and adoration
      to what He did for us on the cross and look forward with hope and
      anticipation to His coming again. Since we must be careful not to come
      to the Lord's table with known sin in our lives, the Holy Supper should
      also be an occasion for looking within, examining our hearts, and
      confessing our sins. ...

      7. Let Us Live With Him! Let Us Learn From Him! Pope's homily at the
      Mass of the Lord's Supper

      At this hour, when the Lord in the most holy Eucharist gives himself,
      his body and his blood, into our hands and into our hearts, let us be
      moved by his prayer. Let us enter into his prayer and thus beseech him:
      Lord, grant us faith in you, who are one with the Father in the Holy
      Spirit. Grant that we may live in your love and thus become one, as you
      are one with the Father, so that the world may believe...

      8. Living the Virtue of Humility

      The virtue of humility has no place in the divine nature of Christ, who
      being one God with the Father has no superior. But humility is an
      essential dimension of His human nature. And we know that the greater
      the dignity of a person, the greater merit there is in that person's
      virtue of humility. Since Christ has ultimate dignity - the dignity of
      divinity - the merit of His humility is beyond all human understanding. ...

      9. A Beautiful Summary of Eucharistic Theology in an Antiphon by Aquinas

      The Eucharist is not only a meal, it is the making present of the
      Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In every mass, we are
      brought to the foot of the cross, and the fruits of that Cross are
      applied to us. ...

      10. Holy Thursday: Why Did Peter Object to Jesus' Washing His Feet?

      Even now, the Lord wants to wash our feet, through the ministry of those
      who have a share in his ministry and who act in his name. He desires to
      make us clean, to give us a share in his inheritance of everlasting
      life, through the Sacrament of Penance that we might worthily partake of
      his Body and Blood. ...

      11. Missionary Weapons

      Jesus said, "I have given you an example, that you should do as I have
      done to you" (John 13:15). Notice the kind of people that God brings
      around you, and you will be humiliated once you realize that this is
      actually His way of revealing to you the kind of person you have been to
      Him. Now He says we should exhibit to those around us exactly what He
      has exhibited to us. ...

      12. Sequence of the Last Supper Events

      On Holy Thursday, let's examine the sequence of the Last Supper which
      pretty well illustrates why the Lord had to die for us. We will see how
      earnest the Lord is about this Last Supper, how he enters it with an
      intense love for his disciples and a desire that they (we) carefully
      heed what he is trying to teach them. We shall see however that the
      disciples (we) show forth a disastrous inattentiveness and a terrible
      lack of concern for the Lord.
