Preparing for the Way of the Cross – The Last Supper


The Last Supper
This image of the Last Supper prepares us to move from the pain of the cross to the glory of the Resurrection. The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross is the sacrifice of the Eucharist. It is the Eucharist that sustains us as we struggle with our crosses in life and gives us hope for the future. We watch the journey of Christ, seeing how he moves from the companionship of his friends to the loneliness of his death through to the triumph of his resurrection.

Lord, you gathered with your disciples for the Last Supper. They looked to you for strength and support. Lord, we remember those who will today face their ‘Last Supper’ and ‘Calvary’, because of illness, suicide or depression. We pray too for those who face death because of changes in the global environment. Be there for them as you were for your disciples, the source of strength and support.
