Lent Day 36

BOOK IV - The Words of Intimate Conversation

41 His direct instructions to them in preparation for His leaving them
42 The poignancy of betrayal and of human endings
43 His words concerning the bread and wine
44 Instructions about the employment of worldly goods in the work of the Kingdom
45 The new commandment

Reflect: How does it impact the way you hear these words if you know they were all spoken during Jesus' last hours with his disciples before death? Why do you think Jesus calls the command to love one another a "new commandment"?
