The Breaking of the Bread

For this Holy Thursday, we will focus on the all-too-familiar account of the Last Supper.

Just as important as what actually happened at the Last Supper is when it happened. For our Lord, this supper with his disciples was so significant precisely because it would be His last with them.

Before you read the passage, take some time to imagine how you would feel if you had the chance to plan one final meal.

Read the passage slowly and prayerfully. As you read the account, imagine what the persons in the story must be thinking and feeling. Be mindful as well of what’s going on inside of you.

You may rely on this instrumental piece to pace your reading and reflection.

You may want to go over the passage again and linger in one or two verses.
