Holy Thursday or Thursday of the Holy Mysteries is the first day of the Easter Triduum. On that day Jesus had His Last Supper with His disciples and founded the sacraments, especially the Sacrament of the Eucharist and the Priesthood.
O Lord, you invited us to share in this Passover by giving us your body and blood. May we share in your passion and death so that we may one day be reborn with you in glory.
Second Prayer, Thursday of Mysteries Morning, Maronite Liturgy.
