Holy Thursday

Holy Thursday starts Triduum.  Beginning with the Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper (the name for tonight's once-a-year Mass), the feeling of everything in church changes. 

Oh, it's still Mass.  In a way, Holy Thursday is more intimate, more personal than Mass on Sunday.  And yet... 

There's something about it.  The way that it ends is different.  Unsettling.  There's a feeling that something's not right.

It's the calm before the storm.
