Priestly Thursday – Devotion
Both the Eucharist and the priesthood “have their roots in” the Last Supper. We thank Jesus for giving us the Eucharist and the priesthood.
St. Thomas shows that devotion is not just an emotion (“feeling devotion”) but that it is a virtue and act of the will whereby we readily dedicate ourselves to those things that have to do with the service of God….
According to the traditions of the Catholic Church each day of the week is associated with a particular devotion.
Priestly Thursday devotion has its roots in the Thursday devotion to the Holy Spirit whose power explains the strength shown by martyrs in their glorious suffering and death as witnesses to Christ, remembrance of the Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist.
Friday brings the remembrance of Christ’s redemptive passion and death. (We begin our Holy hour with the Way of the Cross) Friday is also the day of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The First Friday of the month is a special day of adoration, mainly in reparation for the sins of mankind. Or sign up in the vestibule in the blue Adoration binder.
