The Memorial - Friday April 3rd

"Also, he (Jesus) took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body, which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”  Luke 22:19

Jesus commanded that we commemorate his death.   So, every year, millions gather after sunset on the 14th day of the month of Nisan - which falls on April 3rd this year - to memorialise this important event.

It will be held at your local Kingdom Hall, and you will be most welcome to come.   Millions join us every year.

It begins at 7.30 p,m. here - and I hope you will have received, or at least been offered, your own invitation.   We try to get to as many doors as possible. But its not easy to find you at home.

It takes about an hour.  It will begin and end with a short prayer and a song.   The bread and wine will be offered. though there are few who take it these days.  There will be a talk explaining the meaning and importance of the event.

It is through Jesus' sacrificial death that we, the damaged children of disobedient Adam, can be restored to the life and perfection that our first parents so willfully threw away in Eden.

An extra special day for me, as it is the day Captain Butterfly comes with me to the Kingdom Hall and I can hold his hand during the prayer. And Jackie comes too.
