Remember Holy Thursday? The Last Supper? It’s worth a second look on Corpus Christi.
What about the Last Supper is worth a second look?
Something that doesn’t usually get more than a passing mention at the start of Triduum. If it gets mentioned at all.
In the middle of everything that was happening on Holy Thursday, Corpus Christi is here to make sure we don’t miss the fact that the Last Supper is the First Eucharist.
Which explains why Sunday’s Gospel is the “this is my body, this is my blood” part of the Last Supper.
Where Jesus is anything but subtle about exactly what/who the Eucharist is.
More on this tomorrow.
