MAUNDY THURSDAY

Collect:

Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, did institute the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may thankfully receive the same in remembrance of him who in these holy mysteries giveth us a pledge of life eternal, the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

Today's sermon is part of a series by Bishop Chartres entitled ‘Humanity brought to life by the humanity of God’

“Is it not evident that the Father accepts the sacrifice not because he demands it or feels some need of it but in order to carry out his own plans? Humanity had to be brought to life by the humanity of God ...we had to be called back to him by his Son. Let the rest be adored in silence.” Saint Gregory Nazianzen - Orations for Easter (45)
