The Last Supper

"When the time came, Jesus and the apostles sat down together at the table. Jesus said, “I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won’t eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” Then he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. Then he said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come.” He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it.  Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this to remember me.” After supper he took another cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you." 

(Luke 22:14-20)

Prayer

The Sharing of the Peace

The peace of the Lord be with you always. 

And also with you. 

Invitation

Jesus was always the guest.


In the homes of Peter and Jairus, Martha and Mary,
he was always the guest.


At the meal tables of the wealthy, 

where he pled the cause of the poor, 

he was always the guest.


Upsetting polite company,

befriending isolated people, 

welcoming the stranger,


he was always the guest.


But here, at this table,
 he is the host. 


So come, you who hunger and thirst for a deeper faith, 

for a better life, for a fairer world.


Jesus Christ, who has sat at our tables,


now invites us to be guests at his.
