I read a beautiful article this morning which added more meaning to the words our Lord spoke at the Last Supper, “Do this in remembrance of me”.
Its an article that speaks about the significance of THAT Passover feast in which our Lord gave all of Himself to us. The shear difference of this last supper, as compared to all the others before. “Why were there no women at the Last Supper?”
I have never been a supporter of women priests or deacons, and after having read this article, I am more in support of this position, for not ever having them. You see, when our Lord said: “do this in memory of me.” He meant it. It meant all of it. There wasn’t any women there. This feast was very different. And it has remained, very different. It is the very difference our Lord made, with His sacrifice, that changed everything. As it still does today.
Prayers for all our Lords priests today, and always.
