On Holy Thursday, we remember the day that Jesus instituted the Eucharist during the Last Supper with His apostles.
After they ate, Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray, asking His Father, “if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will.” (Matthew 26:42)
Even though Jesus asked His disciples to keep watch, they kept falling asleep as He prayed.
We can remember these events by going to Mass on Holy Thursday and celebrating the Eucharist, while praying to God like Jesus did.
