Mangalore 21st March:With the Mass celebrated in the evening of Maundy Thursday, the Church inaugurates the sacred Easter Triduum, aiming at recalling that last supper, when the Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, loving those who were his own in the world until the very end, offered his Body and Blood under the species of bread and wine to God and under these symbols, gave them to his Apostles that they might consume them, and ordered them and their successors in the priesthood to offer them.
Today the church focuses herself on the mysteries of the institution of the Eucharist and that of the priestly Order, together with the Lord’s command of brotherly love. This celebration was held in St Jude Shrine Pakshikere on the 20th of March 2008. Rev. Fr.Alban, the parish priest celebrated the Mass and Fr.Sunil Veigas, the Assistant Parish Priest, preached the homily. Fr J.J.Martis and Fr.Praveen were the co-celebrants. The washing of feet of twelve men commemorating the washing of feet of the twelve Apostles by Jesus was held. Later an hour of adoration was also held.
