So what is it about the Last Supper that’s worth another look?
It usually doesn’t get more than a passing mention (if at all) in the scramble of Holy Thursday (let alone Triduum). But Corpus Christi is here to make sure we don’t miss it. The Last Supper is the First Eucharist.
Which is why the epistle (1 Corinthians) is the “this is my body, this is my blood” part of the Last Supper. Where Jesus is anything but subtle.
