Holy Thursday

Psalm text (Ps 116:12-13, 15-16, 17-18)

Our blessing cup is a communion with the Blood of Christ.

How shall I make a return to the Lord
for all the good He has done for me?
The cup of salvation I will take up,
and i will call upon the name of the Lord.

Precious in the eyes of the Lord
is the death of His faithful ones.
I am your servant, the son of your handmaid;
you have loosed my bonds.

To You will I offer sacrifice of thanksgiving
and I will call upon the name of the Lord.
My vows to the Lord I will pay
in the presence of all His people.



Gospel Verse (Jn 13:34)

I give you a new commandment, says the Lord; Love one another as I have loved you.
