"Pay attention to what happens in these next days. A shift in Jesus is happening, and it begins with Mary bending over and washing the feet of the Lord and anointing them with costly nard. It ends, not in the Upper Room, or even at the Empty Tomb, but at every Eucharist when we go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

– Br. James Koester

On Tuesday in Holy Week at the Monastery, we celebrate the Eucharist in the evening. This evening gathering around the Lord's Table invites us to join the disciples at the Upper Room, sharing a meal with the Lord.

We reflect together on the words of used at the presentation of the Bread and Cup here at the Monastery, which derive from St. Augustine’s Sermon 57, On the Holy Eucharist: Behold what you are.  May we become what we receive.  

These words point to one of the deep truths of Christian faith: Through our participation in the sacraments (particularly baptism and Eucharist), we are transformed into the Body of Christ, given for the world.

How is God transforming you into Christ's Body and giving you to the world?


Psalm 78:14-20, 23-25

    Br. Curtis Almquist walks us through Psalm 71, powerful words for all of us today, as we live in the fear of death and the hope of resurrection.
  • "The Journey from Darkness to Light" – Br. Jim Woodrum
    Br. Jim Woodrum encourages us to step from the shadows, and follow Jesus into the light of new life and resurrection.
  • "The Hour Has Come" – Br. Keith Nelson
    Br. Keith Nelson invites us to the experience of Holy Week as a time of vulnerability, allowing ourselves to experience the paradoxical binaries at the heart of the Gospel and our own lives.
  • "God's Strength in Our Weakness" – Br. David Vryhof
    Br. David Vryhof looks to the cross of Christ to discover how God's strength is made perfect through our weakness.

    Judas' presence at the table of our Lord is an invitation to us all: to mercy.
