Holy Thursday (2016)

Jesus serves us through His sacrificial death and Resurrection (the Paschal Mystery). He came to seek out and find those who are lost. It’s only when we realize we need to be saved that we really know who Jesus is: Joshua, Jesus, God saves, Savior. That is what His name means. How do we connect with His saving power and love? We do this through prayer and the sacraments, especially through the Eucharist. He makes Himself available to us. We can receive Him in the Eucharist with love and reverence, or with indifference or distraction. We may even be too busy to receive Him at all! As the Book of Revelation reminds us: we need to open the door of our heart to Him so He can enter and “dine with us.”
