Spend time reflecting with our beautiful prayers for Holy Week and through to Easter.
Here at Jesus’ final meal, in the breaking of the bread and the washing of feet, we see the perfection of his love.
Gathering us around his table, to share the meal that sustains us, Jesus gives us the gift of himself. Humbly bending to take a towel and a water basin and wash the dust and dirt from the feet of his friends, Jesus tells us, “I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done for you.”
As we allow Jesus to wash us, feed us and show us how to live, let’s pray that we may learn to give our lives in loving service to others. May we never stop seeking a world where all are invited to the table of life.
Maundy Thursday prayer
call us to your table and wash us clean,
so we may open our hearts in compassion and care
for the whole human family.
At the close of the day, pray with us, using this night reflection for Holy Thursday.
