Holy Thursday: Why I Love This Day

Today is Holy Thursday and our entire family is looking forward to attending Mass tonight. Holy Thursday has always been special to me. It not only helps me prepare myself for the solemnity of Good Friday, but also reminds me of the virtues Jesus left us during the Last Supper.

If you did not know, other than the resurrection on Easter Holy Thursday is considered to be one of the most important and profound days of celebration in the Catholic Church. This day celebrates the institution of the Eucharist as the true body and blood of Jesus Christ, and the institution of the sacrament of the priesthood. This day also commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles, during which he offers himself as the Passover sacrifice, the sacrificial lamb.
