“Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” – John 13:8

Holy Thursday celebrates the institution of the Eucharist as the true body and blood of Jesus Christ and the institution of the sacrament of the priesthood. The Priesthood was born during the Last Supper when Jesus gave his new love commandment, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.” (John 13:34)
