During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Text Information:

This text conveys well the paradox of despair and expectancy felt on Maundy Thursday. The somber repetition of “this night” here contrasts with and prepares for the joyful “this is the night” repeated in the Exsultet, the ancient Easter hymn at the lighting of the paschal candle.
