The Maundy Thursday prayer? Well, it’s pretty straightforward. But we’ve got a lot more to say about the aspects of this day that make the Orthodox name for the day, “Thursday of Mysteries,” seem pretty appropriate.
This is the first of our three special episodes about the collects for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, in addition to our regularly scheduled Palm Sunday and Easter shows. Stay tuned to iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.(page 221 of the Book of Common Prayer, or bcponline.org)
