O Christ, the true vine and the source of life, ever giving thyself that the world may live; who also hast taught us that those who would follow thee must be ready to lose their lives for thy sake: Grant us so to receive within our souls the power of thine eternal sacrifice, that in sharing thy cup we may share thy glory, and at the last be made perfect in thy love.
Today is #MaundyThursday when we remember the Last Supper
The name comes from the word mandatum, ‘to command’, recalling the words of Jesus to his disciples: ‘A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another’
