Holy Thursday

White Thursday
This is My Body given for you.

Holy Thursday

A day of splendor

The institution
Of the Eucharist

The washing of the feet
The humble Servant

Garden of Gethsemane.Jerusalem
Garden of Gethsemane.Thousand-year olive trees, Jerusalem

The agony of Gethsemany

Can you not wake
One hour with Me

Betrayal and denial
By His closest friends

The fake judgement
And ill trial

Hours of darkness

A prayer of agony in the garden of olives
A prayer of agony in the garden of olives

Biblical reference

Luke 22:39-46

Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them,

Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”

He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,

Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.

An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.  And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.

Why are you sleeping?”

he asked them.

Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”
