Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food.
Seated at table for the last time with those who have shared the joys and the hardships of the journey, Jesus blesses bread once again for them. This is a night of so many Exodus memories for those at the table; it will become a night of new and more powerful memories of what is about to begin. One constant is the truth that it is at the table that they find and will continue to find their unity and their strength.
Let us come to find our places at this table of plenty for all.
