Holy Thursday

  /   Thursday April 17, 2003  

Here we are at Holy Thursday night. It has been a long time since I have understood how the world can even go on as usual during such a holy time. This is truly the high point of the year.

I went to Mass at my parish as planned. There was a beautiful transfer procession to the altar of repose in the prayer garden/courtyard that is almost finished being constructed. We kept watch with Our Lord. The Church was stripped bare. The Blessed Sacrament is gone from there and will not return until Saturday night.

It was tonight that we celebrated the institution of the Holy Eucharist and the institution of the priesthood. All four priests at my parish were there together. I just don’t know how to describe how this time of year is to me. I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
