Fr Lum Vu OFM Cap will lead us in the Christian meaning of the Passover meal
Enter more deeply into the Passion of Christ during the Holy Week by having a seder meal, similar to the Passover, or Last Supper that Jesus would have celebrated with his Apostles. With the knowledge that Christ has come and redeemed the world, we can incorporate a Christian attitude during the seder meal.
The purpose of this meal-celebration is to draw relationships between the Passover and important New Testament truths. It is vital to our understanding of these relationships that we recognise that Jesus was a faithful Jew who observed Judaic laws - from the circumcision to the feast of the Unleavened Bread, his Last Supper.
No attempt has been made in this meal formula to reconstruct an authentic Passover ritual of either Christ's time or of present day Judaism. But by using some of the basic Jewish prayers and an adaptation of the traditional questions of the Passover meal, Catholics can become more familiar with the Jewish tradition .
