Thursday of the Lord’s Supper [Holy Thursday] (Mar 28, 2024)

“We should glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection, through whom we are saved and delivered.” One might think that a Eucharistic hymn might serve as an Entrance chant for Holy Thursday, but the Church chose a text that sings of the fullness of the three days of the Sacred Paschal Triduum.
