O God, who have called us to participate in this most sacred Supper, in which your Only Begotten Son, when about to to hand himself over to death, entrusted to the Church a sacrifice new for all eternity, the banquet of his love, grant, we pray, that we may draw from so great a mystery, the fullness of charity and of life. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
The Last Supper, painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1495-1498, is one of the most famous paintings done on fresco. It depicts the scene of Jesus telling his twelve disciples that one of them will betray him. I like this painting becuase there are a ton of different symbols in this painting, such as the windows in the background that represents heaven.
On the Thursday before Easter, called Holy or Maundy Thursday, four events are remembered: the Last Supper, the Foot-Washing of the Apostles by Jesus, the prayer of Christ in Gethsemane, and the Arrest of Jesus. Each of these events can be found in icons, and especially on church walls as part of the iconostasis, but the 15th Century Russian icon here groups the four events together.
