“Stay here and keep watch with me.”
- Matthew 26, 38
Holy Thursday, this blessed day of the institution of the Eucharist. This extraordinary gift, this unparalleled food. I have represented it in a very abstract way, not with all of the disciples seated at the Last Supper, but rather as a close-up of the unique moment when Jesus raises his hands and presents the Bread of Life for the very first time. Behind him a gold leaf streaks the space, the bread will never be the same again. The Eucharist is a sun whose light extends endlessly, its radiance warms us at Mass and well beyond. In each consecration, on each Holy Thursday, my breath is cut off at the moment of the words of blessing, it is this moment that I wanted to capture.
