Holy Week Part I… Holy Thursday

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on March 29, 2017

1Cor 1: 27b-30

1Cor 1: 27b-30

CHRISTIAN PRAYER: Tuesday, Holy Week, Evening Prayer: READING 1Cor 1: 27b-30 (emphasis added with commentary)

God singled out the weak of this world to shame the strong…

Jesus’ birth did not alert the wisest of men in Jerusalem or even the rulers of Israel; instead the message was made known to foreigners and shepherds – Mt 2:1-3 & Lk 2: 8-15

He chose the world’s lowborn and despised, those who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who were something…

“When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him…” Mt. 1:3
“Behold, this Child is set for the rise and fall of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted…” Lk 2: 34b

So that mankind can do no boasting before God. 

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God…lest any man should boast.” Eph 2:8, 9b

God it is who has given you life in Christ Jesus.  He has made Him our wisdom and also our justice, our sanctification, and our redemption.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away behold the new has come…Christ reconciled us to Himself…For our sake [God] made Him to be sin who knew no sin, that that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2Cor 5:17, 18b, 21

The Word of the Lord … Thanks be to God!

Holy Thursday, March 29th, 2018…

It is Holy Thursday…

And the INCREDIBLE is about to occur…

On its heels will come the UNTHINKABLE…

With a day in between before the UNBELIEVABLE…!

Out of all the Gospel accounts of the Passion of Christ and the immediate events leading up to it, I think I like St. John’s the best.  His detail is not only filled with much Spiritual Insight, but his is also a First Person account as he was the ONLY APOSTLE to be at the foot of the Cross and constantly at the side of the Mother of God, Mary, during the entire ordeal of Christ’s Passion.

Having said that, it is important to note, in order to have the fullness of the Passion account, however, the reader does need to also refer to the both the Gospels according to St. Matthew and St Luke.

(Special Note: St. Mark’s gospel account mirrors St. Matthew’s gospel which is why I do not refer to it above…)

THE INCREDIBLE…

What IS Holy Thursday? 

Feast of Unleavened Bread

Holy Thursday is known for many things.  It is the day in which the Feast of…

… Unleavened Bread, on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. So Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it.” They said to him, “Where will you have us prepare it?”

He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him into the house which he enters, and tell the householder, ‘The Teacher says to you, Where is the guest room, where I am to eat the Passover with my disciples?’ And he will show you a large upper room furnished; there make ready.”

And they went, and found it as he had told them; and they prepared the Passover. ~Lk 22: 7-13

Here I want to point out a “little known detail” that I learned in my scriptural classes, the “man carrying a jug of water” is an Essene, the Jewish equivalence of a Religious Brother.  They used a different calendar from the religious Jews which explains why Jesus celebrated His Passover on Thursday and not on Saturday (our calendar denotations) as the rest of Jerusalem did.  But as we will soon find out, this small change only adds to the depth of the Passion itself…

Then they shall take some of the blood…

So it is the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the remembrance of Israel’s deliverance out of the bondage of slavery in Egypt.  When the Hebrews were commanded to “gird their loins”, eat bread without leaven as to demonstrate “haste”, no time to sit down and enjoy a meal.  They must be ready to leave at “a moment’s notice”.  And one thing more… they must,

…take every man a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household; and if the household is too small for a lamb, then a man and his neighbor next to his house shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb.

Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old; you shall take it from the sheep or from the goats [not everyone had sheep]; ~Ex 12: 3c-5

A Lamb without blemish…

The Lamb must be WITHOUT BLEMISH…

For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. ~2 Cor 5:21

Jesus knew His “hour had come”, when He was to…

…depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. ~Jn 13:1


AND IT IS ALSO THE DAY when Jesus washed the feet of His disciples…

Rose from supper, laid aside His garments… poured water into a basin…

Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper, laid aside His garments, and girded Himself with a towel. Then He poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. ~Jn 13: 3-5

A puzzling thing, for us in this modern world of socks and shoes, to see the Savior of the world WASH the feet of those He called Apostles.  But for the ancient, this action has GREAT SIGNIFICANCE. 

Anytime one entered into a house or a banquet there were always pitchers and basins of water available to wash the feet of those who had come in from the outside.  Usually done by the person with their own dirty feet.  But CHRIST washed the feet of HIS DISCIPLES, showing them utmost respect.

One of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him, (Please note, Jesus did not invite him, HE INVITED Jesus.  Jesus ate with sinners but only at their invitation, C. Dolan…) and He went into the Pharisee’s house, and took His place at table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that He was at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind Him at His feet, weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head, and kissed His feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

Then turning toward the woman He said to [the Pharisee], “Do you see this woman? I entered your house, you gave Me no water for my feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave Me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss My feet. You did not anoint My head with oil, but she has anointed My feet with ointment. ~Lk 7:36-38, 44-46

Utmost RESPECT…

Son, they have no more wine… Do whatever He tells you.

Beyond the necessary and practical, this was not the first time we encountered this.  The first occurred at another feast, a WEDDING FEAST, when Jesus revealed who He was to His disciples at His mother’s request.  Do you remember when? See Jn 2: 1-11. 

Something to note, the Jars that Jesus had filled which tells us the water in them had already been emptied.  For what?  For the washing of feet, as is customary when entering a house or a feast.  And in these jars Jesus made  NEW WINE out of water.  Thus giving us a FORETASTE of the NEW WINE He will soon institute during this Passover celebration with His Apostles.


We come today to that solemn moment when something of Eternity, something of the sacred sanctuary where God dwells in His total otherness, breaks through out world, and we come face to face with the Living God.  We celebrate today the institution of the Eucharist [the 5th Luminous Mystery] that astonishing gift that Jesus left each one of us, His Presence among us [cf Mt 28:20b], as a living memorial of His Passion and Death, and as the living evidence of His care and concern for us, who often get so lost in the business of living we can forget how precious we are to our Creator.   ~Fr Clifford Stevens, Homily, Holy Thursday, emphasis added.


This is My Body which is given for you.

Tuesday and Wednesday’s readings (Jn 13: 33, 36-38 and Mt 26: 14-25), prepare us for Christ’s Passion and death.  Today’s reading focus on the washing of the Apostle’s feet, which is why we must now look to the accounts in Luke and Matthew to discover this great gift that Jesus fulfills the promise ahead of time, that He will never leave us (Mt 28:20b).  Taken from the Gospels according to St. Luke and St. Matthew, we read…

And He took bread, and when He had given thanks He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My Body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.” And likewise the cup after supper, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the New Covenant in My blood…” ~Lk 22: 19-20, (emphasis added)

“Drink of it, all of you; for this is My Blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins ~Mt 26: 27c-28, (emphasis added)

Did you know that this mirrors much of what was written in Exodus when the directions of how to eat the Passover are explained?

They shall eat the flesh that night, roasted; with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they shall eat it. ~Ex 12:8, (emphasis added)

The flesh of…?

Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male…Ex 12:3c (emphasis added)

But that ‘s not all!  What about the blood from this unblemished male lamb?

Then they shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat them… ~Ex 3:7

The blood shall be a sign for you, upon the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall fall upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. ~Ex 3:13 (emphasis added)

Question:  What is often referred to as the “doorway to the soul”? 

Answer: The Human Heart

But He was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins, upon Him was the chastisement that makes us whole, by His stripes we were healed. ~Is 53:5 (NAB)

… Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart.  I use punishment when they themselves force me to do so;  My hand is reluctant to take hold of the Sword of Justice (cf. Rev 19:11-16).  Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy.~Diary§1588  (emphasis added), Divine Mercy, St. Faustina…

Question: What kind of plague can destroy a person?

Answer: DEATH

Shall I deliver them from the power of the nether world? Shall I redeem them from death? Where are your plagues, O death! where is your sting O nether world!  Compassion is hid from my eyes. ~Hosea 13:14

“O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?”  The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ~1 Cor 15: 15c-17

So by the pouring out of the Lamb’s blood, the “sting of death”, which is right judgment for all who oppose God…

…the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction; since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,…~Romans 3: 22-23 (emphasis added)

God’s rightful judgment will pass over us IF we rely on the Son and His GREAT MERCY which flows from His pierced side…

This IS MY BODY…

So when you attend Mass tonight, and participate in the Lord’s Supper and the washing of the feet, REMEMBER, this TREMENDOUS GIFT came from Him who is LOVE.  Do not receive this gift haphazardly as if it were nothing but mere bread and wine, for what Jesus said, HE MEANT…!

This IS  My Body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of Me…This cup which is poured out for you is the New Covenant in My blood…” ~Luke 22: 19, 20, (emphasis added)

“Drink of it, all of you; for this is My Blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins…” ~Mt 26: 27c-28, (emphasis added)

Because St. Paul warns us MOST STERNLY…

Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the BODY and BLOOD of the Lord. Let a man examine himself [CONFESSION], and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. ~1 Cor 11: 23-29 (emphasis added)

Have you been to Confession yet?

“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…” 2Cor 5:18

In the Eucharist, we come closer to God than is conceivable and He draws close to us in a moment of breathtaking wonder, if we only open our eyes and our minds to the marvel.  [As St. Thomas Aquinas said], “The Eucharist…is the living evidence, the shining token of God’s overpowering LOVE for us.  The very substance of our hopes has its foundation in this tender familiarity of Christ towards us.  The Eucharist IS PROOF…of God’s passionate love for us and all of our HOPE is grounded in this closeness that we have to God in this amazing MYSTERY.” ~Fr Clifford Stevens, Homily, Holy Thursday, (emphasis added)

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine…

Coming Soon: Chapter 9, Part IV: A War in Heaven…the real truth

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on March 26, 2013

He was punished for our sins...

He was punished for our sins…

CHRISTIAN PRAYER: Sunday, Palm Sunday, Evening Prayer I: READING: 1Peter 1: 18-21 (emphasis added)

Realize that you were delivered from the futile way of life your fathers handed on to you, not by any diminishable sum of silver or gold, but by Christ’s blood beyond all price: the blood of a spotless, unblemished lamb chosen before the world’s foundation and revealed for your sake in these last days.  It is through Him that you are believers in God, the God who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory.  Your faith and hope, then, are centered in God.

The Word of the Lord … Thanks be to God.

RESPONSORY: We worship You, O Christ, and we praise you.

Index of Terms

Revelation 12: 7-9 (emphasis added)

War in Heaven

"War broke out in heaven..."

“War broke out in heaven…”

Revelation 12:7 “Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world–he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

We’ve already touched on this passage in the last post, but with this post we’re going to delve a little deeper and go beyond the obvious – Satan wanted to be God…

"How you have fallen from heaven..."

“How you have fallen from heaven…”

How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High.’  But you are brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the Pit.” (Isa 14: 12-14)

Because there is another level to Satan’s rebellion and it’s discussed not only by Barber, but also by many Church Fathers.  Satan not only wanted to be God, but he also did not want to SERVE God, God’s creation – that is man – and WORSHIP the God-Man – that is Jesus!

St. Irenaeus writes, “he [Satan] fell because he was envious of man.” (Barber, 159)

Envy is a deadly sin – btw…

He draws his conclusion from a passage in the book of Wisdom which states…

“…for God created man for incorruption, and made him in the image of His own eternity, but through the devil’s envy death entered the world, and those who belong to his party experience it.” (Wisdom 2: 23-24, emphasis added)

So, in the Garden of Eden Satan tempts our first parents because he’s envious – beyond jealous – of our creation, being so close to our creator. Why is this such a big deal?

Because it makes us ABOVE the Angels! Not even God’s Angels – who are in service before Him day after day, who see God FACE TO FACE – not even they are created in God’s image and likeness.

For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come…” (Heb 2:5)

Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness [notice the plurality here… ‘Let us’, ‘our image’, ‘our likeness’ – Father, Son, Holy Spirit]; and let them have dominion [notice the plurality again, ‘let them’ – man AND woman], over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing…upon the earth… God blessed them…and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over… every living thing that moves upon the earth.” (Gen 1:26, 28, emphasis added with commentary)

That means – since the Angels are in service to God – they are ALSO in SERVICE to us who SHARE in God’s “own eternity [nature] ”.  That’s one thing Satan could not tolerate! To have to serve mankind was too much for him…

“…the devil refused to be a part of God’s plan to make men share in the life of grace with the angels.” (Barber, 159)

The BIG PICTURE...

The BIG PICTURE…

But that’s not the FULL PICTURE.  There is one more element that made Satan’s revolt complete.  That element is the INCARNATION.  When God became man, not only would the angels be in service to man, but NOW they would also WORSHIP man, that is JESUS who IS GOD made MAN.

For to what angel did God ever say, ‘Thou art My Son, today I have begotten thee’? Or again, ‘I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son’?(Hebrews 1:5)

To say this is “the straw that broke the camel’s back” is no exaggeration.  Of Jesus the writer of Hebrews says…

Thou didst make Him for a little while lower than the angels [in that He came down from heaven], Thou has crowned Him with glory and honor, putting everything in subjection under His feet.” (Hebrews 2:7-8)

Let all God’s angels worship HimThy throne, O God, is forever and ever, the righteous scepter of Thy kingdom.  Thou hast loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Thy God, has anointed Thee with the oil of gladness

Thou, Lord, dist found the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of Thy hands [see John 1: 1-3], they will perish, but Thou remainist (Heb 1:6b, 8-9, 10, emphasis added with commentary)

Barber makes note of this…

Upon seeing the close link between the angelic fall and the Incarnation the Fathers speculated that the angels fell because they rejected the notion of a God-Man, whom they would have to worship.” (Barber, 159, emphasis added)

“LET ME ESPLAIN… NO, THERE IS TOO MUCH, LET ME SUM UP…”

"Indigo" from the Princes Bride...

“Indigo” from the Princes Bride…

  • Satan, once the most beautiful of Angels (Lucifer – which means ‘light of God’, but because of his fall he has NO MORE GLORY), created especially by God and loved by God
  • Then God created man – “and He saw that it was very good” (Gen 1:31) – Lucifer is no longer God’s most loved creation
  • Envy strikes at the heart of Lucifer and he rebels, is cast out of heaven (Rev 12:7-9; Lk 10:18; CCC§391-393), and turned his attack on this new creation, he convinces them to turn from God and disobey Him (Gen 3: 1-7; CCC§414)
  • Yet God still places man above this fallen angel as He gives “enmity between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your [Satan] head and you will strike at his heel.” (Gen 3:15)
  • That “seed” spoken of is none other than God Himself, who takes on Flesh, and becoming man is adored and glorfied (Is 7: 13-14; Lk 2: 10-14), and thus crushes the head of Satan by conquering death (Rom5: 12, 17-19; 1Cor 15:21; 1Peter 2:24; CCC§394).

CONQUERING FOR AN ETERNITY

This IS MY BODY...

This IS MY BODY…

It was through the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ that Satan’s hold over death was destroyed.  So would it not stand to reason that when we re-present Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection in the celebration of the Eucharist that the same would occur?

Satan works hard to destroy the Church – that is the Body of Christ – and her head for this very reason.  He vehemently goes after her priests, and then those whom they shepherd because he cannot tolerate the POWER of the Eucharist.

Pius XII explains…

The people unite their hearts in praise, impetration, expiation and thanksgiving with the prayers or intention of the priest, even of the High Priest Himself [who is Christ], so that in the one and same offering of the victim [who again is Christ] and according to a visible sacerdotal rite, they may be presented to God the Father.” (Barber, 161, with commentary, emphasis added)

Satan HATES man because he HATES God and the LOVE that God HAS FOR US, His creation.

The destroyer of hatred IS LOVE

Ponder on that for a moment…

Who is LOVE? See 1John 4:8b

"God showed His LOVE for us in that why we were still sinners, Christ died for us." ~Romans 5:8

“God showed His LOVE for us in that why we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” ~Romans 5:8

In the Eucharist, the Church enters into intimate communion of ONE FLESH with her Bridegroom [Sound familiar? See Gen 2:24b]. 

Christ pours out HIS LIFE in her and through her, so that just as He once offered Himself through His earthly body, so now He offers Himself through the Church.

When the Church offers herself up in the LITURGY, Christ is presenting Himself to the Father through her.

(Barber, 161; emphasis added with commentary)

And WHO brings forth the Eucharist?  Christ’s ministers, the priest, ordained by they who carry on the Apostolic succession- the Bishops – chosen by Christ from the beginning.  It is the priest who stand in the person of Christ – persona en Christi – and bring forth that powerful representation of the ultimate gift of LIFE.

It’s no wonder that Satan has worked so tirelessly and effectively to destroy the priesthood both from without as well as within – homosexual infiltration of seminaries, women seeking ordination, a secular world crying out that the priesthood is obsolete…definitely not!

If Satan could prevent that representation of the Holy Eucharist, the moment when God Himself became flesh and conquered death once and for all, oh would he be a happy fallen angel indeed.

IT WAS A WOMAN…

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!

But this is also why Satan so hates the Woman and why he wages war on women.  After all, it was a WOMAN who brought forth the God-Man.  Women are called to bring forth LIFE and it was a woman who brought forth Him who CREATED LIFE.

Therefore, it’s no wonder that Satan has also worked tirelessly to make women believe that motherhood is a disease instead of a blessing (Child Murder aka Abortion); it’s no wonder that Satan tries to make the woman believe she is nothing if she were not a man (Women’s Ordination, gender reassignments); because of a WOMAN, GOD BECAME MAN, and Satan was defeated because God conquered the power of death.

HOLY THURSDAY/ GOOD FRIDAY…

As we approach these days, let us also reflect on the days we are in…

YESTERDAY in prayer, I heard the words in my heart:

The winds of change are blowing and will not cease now until I have purified and cleansed the world.

~Mark Mallett, March 21, 2013, Snopocalypse!

In the latter days of these last days, the Church will be reduced greatly in numbers partly because of Apostasy…

Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers…”

But also because many are called to be “seeds of the Church”, martyred for the sake of the Kingdom…

The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth…” (CCC§675, excerpt)

And Satan will wage his war directly on you, but BE NOT AFRAID, for Christ tells YOU…

Let not your hearts be troubled… I go to prepare a place FOR YOU… I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I AM you may also be… If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you… When they deliver you up, do not be anxious for how you are to speak, or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour; for it is not you who speaks, BUT the SPIRIT of your Father speaking through you.” (Jn 14: 1, 5, 6; 15:20c; Mt 10: 19-20, emphasis added)

For those who are chosen for the Great Evangelization (cf. Mt 24:14), during the Era of Peace when the Immaculate Heart of Mary triumphs over God’s enemies, to YOU as Our Lady’s army you will receive that which she received…

Like our mother, you also will receive “the wings of an eagle” so to, “that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness to a place where she is to be nourished for a time…” (Rev 12:14b)

But just as Mary did, so too must we do!

Mary gives herself completely to God in an act of self-giving LOVE.  She holds NOTHING back.  EVERYTHING she is, from that moment on, is GIVEN TO GOD… God DEMANDS total SELF-GIVING LOVE. Everything we have and everything we are must be given over to Him.” (Barber, 164, emphasis added)

Mark Mallett’s latest post is an excellent compliment to this statement! He reminds us that…

“…the most important thing is to live the Gospel of Jesus. That you begin again and humble yourself, seeking forgiveness from God and those whom you’ve offended. That you enter into the great adventure, which is prayer, and simply do the duty of the moment with docility and surrender. Be joyful, despite everything, yes, rejoice always!

And seek to have, like Our Lady, a true spirit of poverty. For the degree to which you are emptied of ‘self ‘, is the degree to which you will be filled in The Coming Pentecost.

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. (Rom 12:2)

Two words: voluntary dispossession. Two words which continue to grow in my heart like corn in the fields…

~Mark Mallett, Voluntary Dispossession, March 22, 2013.

We will find our greatest satisfaction and fulfillment in life if we are in FULL service to the ONE who came, “not to be served, but to serve.” (cf. Mt 20:28)  It’s in following His example that we will live our life to the fullest. So take these days to do just that! Make yourselves total servants of the ONE who calls YOU to Himself in service of His people, your neighbors as you fulfill the two greatest commandments…

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your mind, and with all your soul… and YOU shall LOVE your neighbor as yourself.” (cf. Mt 22: 37, 39)

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let all men know your forbearance. The Lord is at hand.  Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4: 4-7)
