In keeping with our Holy Thursday Tradition, we enjoyed a meal of fresh bread, wine (grape juice), raw milk cheese, dates rolled in coconut, and grape. Last year, we had lamb meat, but I didn't have any available this year. John suggested getting gyros next year. I know many who celebrate the Traditional Seder Meal which sounds like an amazing idea that I don't seem to think about doing until the hour before our simple Holy Thursday tradition. The kids love this and look forward to it every year.
John took the older four to Holy Thursday mass. I stayed behind with the Vianney and Clairvaux as bedtime was quickly approaching and the thought of wrestling a tired Clairvaux 67 months pregnant sounded too good to be true. She is still stuck in the sit-and-spin stage at mass so I was glad John was able to take the older ones so they could take everything in. They all wanted to go an hour early so they could sit up front to see the men get their feet washed by Msgr. Nemec. John and I watched the movie "The Passion" tonight. It is such a good movie every time.
