Saving Graces

new mercies each and every day

Easter Triduum – Maundy Thursday


 It’s Maundy Thursday and a song that Sr. Sturmia taught us was sung today – “The Lord Jesus, after eating with His friends, washed their feet and said to them Do you know what I your Lord has done to you? I have given you example that so you also should do”

Padre talked about service and it was intense. We renewed our commitments to our ministries, guess who stood up more than once? He talked about how we are all called to be feet washers, to realise that ours is a life of service to the body of Christ. We then went to wait and watch.

A grotto type of garden had been created in the hall where they placed the Host. And it was adoration at its best. Another of Sr. Sturmia’s finest…

“My soul is sad My heart is breaking tonight Could you not watch and comfort me until night I am alone surrounded only by night Could you not watch one hour with me?”

So we wait… and watch… ht pic1, ht pic 2
