Reflections from the Holy Land - The Last Supper

March 29, 2016
Salt + Light made a pilgrimage on the footsteps of Jesus in the heart of Lent and offers us reflections of the holy places we visited.
In this meditation we meet at the Cenacle in Jerusalem where Jesus shared one last meal with his friends. During this Last Supper, we are confronted with Christ's radical humility. It directs us towards his ultimate humiliation at the time of his Passion. But in this lowering he reveals to us the "real face" of God, as Pope Francis once pointed out, a face of love and mercy.
