Maundy Thursday

This is the day of atonement, the day of fulfillment, the day of the passover, the day of the prodigal son welcomed home, the day of all things written for us come to fulfillment; this is Yom Kippur fulfilled. Tonight the day begins, and it concludes Friday, after the crucifixion. It is the day Moses sprinkles the blood on the altar and on the people. Christ's blood is sprinkled on the altar and on us, in the Blessed Sacrament. The sermon.
