The Last Supper

The Easter Triduum begins the evening of Holy Thursday with the Mass of the Lord's Supper. This Mass commemorates Jesus' Last Supper. It was at the Last Supper that Jesus instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion and instituted the priesthood. Jesus was celebrating the Passover feast with His apostles and even foretells of the betrayal of Judas at this meal.
