“On Maundy Thursday, Narrative, & Sacrament” – Patrol Magazine


I’ve got a new article up at Patrol Magazine.  In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been doing a series on Holy Week all week (you can the relevant links below).  The article is about a few different things.  First, it’s about today being Maundy Thursday, the day of the Church calendar where we celebrate the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist.  It’s also about my growth in a more liturgical context for church and love for the sacraments. Lastly, it’s about what bearing this has on our “selfhood” and how we look at the rest of the world.

Maundy Thursday, Narrative, & Sacrament

For my Philly peeps, my church, Liberti: South Philly is joining with the other churches in the Liberti family for a combined Maundy Thursday service at the Fairmount location.  The service will be at 7:30 at 19th & Girard Ave.  It should be amazing.  Also, don’t forget to attend a Good Friday service in your area.  I hope you have a wonderful and beautiful Easter Triduum.  Here are like-minded articles:

  1. If you haven’t already, I would suggest finding some Jewish friends and celebrate Passover next year. The seder is a beautiful service, and the connection with this holy week makes every prayer even more meaningful.

    I grew up celebrating Passover, since my mom’s family is Jewish. Thinking back to the prayers, and the history behind them, I just wish that I could go back. 🙂
