“Though we betray him, though it is the night,

He meets us here and loves us into the Light”.

(c) Malcolm Guite, 2012.

Maundy Thursday is such a mixed day. Chrism Mass is about acknowledging each other, praying and supporting each other in Christ and that means in love. It feels like a coming together of the Christian family even if our own families are broken. The historical events of the First Communion is engrained within my emotion. Couple this with today being my Aunt’s funeral makes is a very difficult day.

Today is also a day of betrayal. Today I have felt this on a personal level. Tonight is the Vigil. So many prayers to  be said and so much forgiveness to ask for.
