Daily Reflection (Maundy Thursday)

A seat at His table

This is a Maundy Thursday like no other. We are denied the opportunity of celebrating communion as a community in our churches. Loved ones long to be together. But as Reverend Eryl Parry reflects on the nature of Christ’s invitation to take a seat at His table, we can be joined to Him wherever we are.

Before you watch this reflection, you may want to read the account of what we know as the Last Supper in John Chapter 13.

The Old Testament

What can I give back to God
    for the blessings he’s poured out on me?
I’ll lift high the cup of salvation—a toast to God!
    I’ll pray in the name of God;
I’ll complete what I promised God I’d do,
    and I’ll do it together with his people.
When they arrive at the gates of death,
    God welcomes those who love him.
Oh, God, here I am, your servant,
    your faithful servant: set me free for your service!
I’m ready to offer the thanksgiving sacrifice
    and pray in the name of God.
I’ll complete what I promised God I’d do,
    and I’ll do it in company with his people,
In the place of worship, in God’s house,
    in Jerusalem, God’s city.

Psalm 116: 12-19 The Message


Yr Hen Destament

Sut alla i dalu nôl i’r Arglwydd

am fod mor dda tuag ata i?

Dyma offrwm o win i ddiolch iddo am fy achub,

a dw i am alw ar enw’r Arglwydd.

Dw i am gadw fy addewidion i’r Arglwydd

o flaen ei bobl.

Mae bywyd pob un o’i bobl ffyddlon

yn werthfawr yng ngolwg yr Arglwydd.

Plîs Arglwydd, dw i wir yn un o dy weision

ac yn blentyn i dy forwyn.

Rwyt ti wedi datod y clymau oedd yn fy rhwymo i.

Dw i’n cyflwyno offrwm i ddiolch i ti

ac yn galw ar enw yr Arglwydd.

Dw i am gadw fy addewidion i’r Arglwydd

o flaen y bobl sy’n ei addoli

yn ei deml yn Jerwsalem.


Salm 116: 12-19 beibl.net

God our Father,
you have invited us to share in the supper
which your Son gave to his Church
to proclaim his death until he comes:
may he nourish us by his presence,
and unite us in his love;
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Dduw ein Tad,
gwahoddaist ni i gyfranogi o’r swper
a roes dy Fab i’r Eglwys
i gyhoeddi ei angau nes y daw drachefn:
bydded iddo ein maethu â’i bresenoldeb,
a’n huno yn ei gariad ef;
sy’n fyw ac yn teyrnasu gyda thi a’r Ysbryd Glân,
yn un Duw, yn awr ac am byth. Amen.
