The Last Supper
This image is part of a set of five icons depicting the Luminous Mysteries of the rosary. They were commissioned by the priest at Sacred Heart Church in Los Angeles, California. The icons were installed in the high altar of the church. Sacred Heart Church is a historic church in Los Angeles and if famous for having all of the mysteries of the rosary as stained-glass windows. Since the Luminous mysteries are a much more recent development, they did not have them in stained glass, so the pastor commissioned a set of icons of the Luminous Mysteries.
This icon depicts the Last Supper. Christ is wearing the robes of a priest and holding up the Eucharist and the chalice. All of the Apostles are gathered around Jesus, except for Judas, who is sneaking out in the upper right corner.
The Last Supper was a passover mean celebrated by Jesus and His disciples the night before Jesus’s suffering and death. At the last supper, Jesus prayed over the bread and then the wine, saying that the bread and wine were his body and blood which would be offered up for the sins of the world. Jesus commissioned the Apostles: do this in memory of me.
Thus the Last Supper was the first Mass, and it was also the time at which the apostles were commissioned as the first bishops to continue to celebrate the Mass for the Church. AMDG!
