Maundy Thursday

Pics by : Clanut (9686628529)

For Catholics It is the triple Celebration on Maundy Thursday, the day of installation of the Sacrament of Eucharist the establishment of Priesthood and today is the day where Christ set an example of simplicity and obedience by washing feet of his disciples.  According to Jewish culture guest were welcomed by washing feet and this was done by servants or by slaves.  But here Christ goes down to the level of a slave by washing feet by himself.  

Today is the day Jesus Commands his followers to celebrate the Eucharist until his second coming to the Earth.  

Today Bejai Congregation celebrated this holy day with a great ardor and entreating to the Savior.  Rev Fr Robert Dsouza in his homily gave example of Italian Bishop Tony Bello, who died of cancer at the age of 58.  On Maundy Thursday of 1993, while on his deathbed, he dictated a pastoral letter to the priests of his diocese.  He called upon them to be bound by "the stole and the towel."  The stole symbolizes union with Christ in the Eucharist, and the towel symbolizes union with humanity by service.  The priest is called upon to be united with the Lord in the Eucharist and with the people as their servant.  Today we celebrate the institution of both the Eucharist and the priesthood: the feast of "the stole and the towel," the feast of love and service.
