"You shall tell your child on that day, saying, 'It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.'" ~Exodus 13:8
The Lord’s Supper
26 During the meal Jesus took some bread in his hands. He blessed the bread and broke it.
Then he gave it to his disciples and said, “Take this and eat it. This is my body.”
27 Jesus picked up a cup of wine and gave thanks to God. He then gave it to his disciples and said, “Take this and drink it. 28 This is my blood, and with it God makes his agreement with you. It will be poured out, so that many people will have their sins forgiven. 29 From now on I am not going to drink any wine, until I drink new wine with you in my Father’s kingdom.” 30 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.~ Matthew 26
Within our Catholic tradition the Eucharistic celebration invites each of us to participate in the life of The Christ, freely shared with all who participate in His call to follow Him all the days of our life. It is no secret for those of us who believe in His presence alive in our life, that The Christ provides for our every need when we accept His invitation to eat at His banqueting table.
Franco Zeffirelli's, Jesus of Nazareth is the closest to The Gospel account of The Last Supper that I have been able to discover among a variety of television productions. In my opinion the atmosphere generated in this production is truly mystical.
