International Meal 2015

Easter Tomb 2015


"They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, following the Jewish burial custom. At the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been buried. Since it was the Jewish Day of Preparation and the tomb was near at hand, they laid Jesus there." - Good Friday Passion of St John.

Holy (Maundy) Thursday 2015


"Christ celebrated the passover with his disciples. He gave them a new commandment, that they love one another as he loved them. This love is shown in service. During the Last Supper, Christ washed the feet of his disciples. He instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist. The Mass makes effectively present the events that took place on that night and is the source from which all the other sacraments flow and towards which they all lead. On this evening the old Jewish rite gives way to the new sacrifice given to the Church by Jesus Christ." - ( Taken from "Your Sunday Missal, p.222).
