Holy Thursday Evening
The Passion of Our Lord
Holy Thursday beings with the final events that lead to the Lord's Passion. On this day, the last supper is celebrated. There are typically two services that take place during Holy Thursday. This is the day where He was sentenced to death and nailed on the cross. After the reading of the fifth Gospel comes the procession with the Crucifix around the Church, while the priest chants the 15th antiphon. During the Procession, the faithful Christian kneels and prays for his spiritual welfare, imitating the thief on the Cross who confessed his faith and devotion to Christ. He then approaches and reverently kisses the Crucifix.
