When it looks like defeat for Our Lord, who is hanging on the Cross, this is in fact the victory, because the Cross represents the supreme expression of divine mercy and love. The mystery of the Last Supper will be unveiled at the Cross because there we will see the Fourth Cup. The Eucharist, the Last Supper, and Calvary illuminate each other. They explain one another. By suffering out of obedience and love, Christ gave God the Father more than was required to compensate for all the sins of the human race.
In this moving video, Dr. Scott Hahn reflects on the Paschal Mystery. Make sure to get a copy of The Fourth Cup to go deeper into the connections between the Eucharist, the Last Supper, and Calvary.
