Mark 14:12-16 NRSVue

12On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, his disciples said to him, “Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?” 13So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him, 14and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 15He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” 16So the disciples set out and went to the city and found everything as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover meal.

Some thoughts on this scripture

At this Passover meal, Jesus broke the bread and poured the wine which would be forever the action of his love among us. As he ate the Passover with the disciples, so now we eat and drink with him, the sacramental sign of his presence and his love among us. Faith nourished in prayer leads us to the Eucharist, the sign of unity and of mission in his people.
