Today is Holy Thursday. Today’s podcast is a little longer, so that we can look at a few more dimensions of this special day.
We hear today about the ancient Roman Station, several thoughts from Benedict XVI and the Collects for the Masses of the Chrism and of the Last Supper.
After Peter was converted, he was called to strengthen his brethren. It is not irrelevant that this task was entrusted to him in the Upper Room. The ministry of unity has its visible place in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Dear friends, it is a great consolation for the Pope to know that at each Eucharistic celebration everyone prays for him, and that our prayer is joined to the Lord’s prayer for Peter. Only by the prayer of the Lord and of the Church can the Pope fulfill his task of strengthening his brethren – of feeding the flock of Christ and of becoming the guarantor of that unity which becomes a visible witness to the mission which Jesus received from the Father..
Pray for Pope Francis.
