Narrative: This iconographic depiction of the Last Supper presents Christ in a gesture of blessing as he presides quietly in the center of the Upper Room. The Apostles discuss the institution of the Holy Eucharist as well as the other astonishing revelations of Holy Thursday. Saint John the Beloved reclines on the breast of Christ. Judas, reaching out over the table, is distracted from the holy scene and is shown in profile rather than in the usual face forward presentation of iconography to symbolize that he is spiritually askew.
“The bread of angels becomes the bread of man;
This bread of heaven puts an end to all symbols.
O thing most wondrous! The poor, the servants, the lowly
Are feeding on their Lord.”
– from Sacris Solemniis, one of Saint Thomas Aquinas’ hymns in honor of Jesus in
the Blessed Sacrament (This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards. A copy is included with each plaque.)
