Holy Thursday - Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper

True religion is about community, not control or obedience. God desires a family, not a corporation. Look at what we are offered tonight: a memorial feast, a remembrance of friendship, and a model relationship. We are the ones who turn celebration into obligation, love into a rulebook, and siblings into strangers, not our Parent. But that is actually good news, because it tells us that it doesn't have to be this way. We chose to turn religion into a corporation. We can choose to make it different.
