Maundy Thursday Sermon, the Rev. Dr. Mark Bozzuti-Jones, "The Liberation Story of Maundy Thursday"

April 1, 2021

"Do you know who you are? Do you know who you are called to become? Do you know what you are called to do?" The Rev. Dr. Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones reflects on what he calls the Liberation Story of Maundy Thursday, which invites us to be like God.

The commandment of Maundy Thursday, "Love one another as I have loved you," when set against the realities of today: the trial of the officer who killed George Floyd, White supremacy, Black Lives Matter, 4,000 acts of violence against Asian community members in single year-- how many more heartbreaks will we cause in our world when we refuse to love and serve others?

"We need Christians who know who they are," says Father Mark. "This Maundy Thursday we have the answer for who we are called to be. They will know us by our love."
