Come, O faithful,
let us enjoy the Master’s hospitality,
the Banquet of Immortality!
In the upper chamber with uplifted minds,
let us receive the exalted words of the Word,
Whom we magnify!
– Magnification for Holy Thursday, commemorating the institution of the Mystical Supper.
I especially missed being present at the Holy Thursday Liturgy. It’s somber in many ways, but has always felt to me like a joyful service: What could be a greater gift to us than the Eucharist, instituted on this day?
