Jerusalem patriarch: Holy Thursday homily

March 25, 2016

Patriarch Fouad Twal, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, celebrated the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

The prelate preached on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Eucharist, and the priesthood, describing them as “three pillars of our Christian faith [that] are based on a single truth, the love of our God without limits, who wants to save us.”

They are, he continued, “living signs of a God who never tires of waiting for us, to raise us up and to remain with us.”
