Day Thirty Eight, Maundy Thursday

Kneeler 96

John 13

…Jesus said; "Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him.

32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once.

33 Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, 'Where I am going, you cannot come.'

34 I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another.

35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

O God of Forgiveness we contemplate you …

You pour out your lifeblood in love for us,
you pursue us and disturb us and accept us,
you meet our sin and pain with the gift of a
costly and infinite enduring, overcoming evil with good.

O God of Forgiveness, we contemplate you …
