Wonderful things...


We too,in Catholism, celebrate with readings from the old testament on the passover and we the body and blood of Christ at Mass (communion). We also celebrate the "washing of the feet" as Jesus did his disciples at the last supper.
It reminds us to love each other as He loves us.

The church also considers this day as the institution of the priesthood because of the Eucharistic celebration. We honor and are grateful to our priests for providing this important sacrament.

It truly is a very special day for all faiths and one that teaches us many lessons.

May your Holy Week fill your hearts throughout the year!

Yours in Christ,

Yours in Christ,
