The Last Supper

The Christian Community throughout the world is observing Holy Thursday today. It was commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ. During this holy week the Christians remember the passion of Christ which leads to his death on Good Friday and then finally his glorious resurrection, which is celebrated as Easter Sunday.

I wish to write my thoughts about the Last Supper. Last Supper is the communion of Christ had with his disciples, the symbolic communion of Christ with the Church, the people, the followers. The doctrine of Eucharist is established on this day. Christ after the last supper had washed the feet of his followers one by one. He had set up an unique example of servitude and humbleness. He mentioned upon enquiry by his followers that his followers should also act in such a way in their real life situation. This has become an important component of Christian teachings.

Today one third of the inhabitants of this world possess Christianity. Each of the Christians is meant to follow the teachings of Christ. In reality, this is absent at all. Its easy to find a Christian but difficult to find a Christian who follows the teachings of Christ. Reflections of these teachings are quite absent in the life of the Leaders of the society who claim to be Christians. It is difficult to imagine that Leaders are serving the people. Very few leaders have such quality, to serve the people and express such humbleness and do have the courage to forgive the offenders unconditionally; which is the first teaching of Christ. If the teachings of Christ were frequently practiced then the new world order of peace and tranquility would prevail.
