Institution of the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Holy Orders
The Last Supper - Nesterenko, Vasily Igorevich
“Consider, on your knees, the mystery of God’s love for us, that He didn't want to leave us orphans. … For Christ knew our hunger for Himself. He knew that we would be walking around in the darkness of a thousand wars and miseries throughout this life. … This is Holy Thursday. This is when the Christ we are talking about took an ordinary piece of bread and a little wine and changed it into His Body and His Blood. … Remember this day always, year after year: the day of Christ’s infinite love, when He went away and yet He remained, in Bread and Wine, and in the priest. …
In His immense love, Christ chose men who would have His hands and His feet, in whom He could walk, in whom He could forgive sins, who could lift Him up, who could give us the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist – the Bread and Wine, which He said makes for everlasting life! The incredible love of God is visible to us! ..."
