Celebration of the Holy Supper Around the World

May 8, 2023

From Israel to Germany, Guatemala to Chile, and from Equatorial Guinea in Africa to the Philippines, more than 55 host nations in four continents celebrated the Holy Supper in May 2023.


This act is a commemoration to remember a specific point in our history, whose experiences become present in every moment we celebrate this sacred memorial in the same way.

The sacrament is restored in Israel

In the case of the historic celebration in Israel, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, Naason Joaquin Garcia, wrote in his epistle of May 7, 2023:

[rt_blockquote_style blockquote_style=”three” blockquote_content=”We will begin in Israel, where after almost twenty centuries, this sacrament returns where it was instituted, for the first time, at a table where Christ gathered his disciples, and celebrated it.” blockquote_css=”.vc_custom_1694707622478{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 5px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;background-color: rgba(102,0,27,0.15) !important;*background-color: rgb(102,0,27) !important;}” blockquote_icon_color=”#700320″]

History places us in the month of April of the year 33 of our era, as the most probable date. Others have mentioned that it could’ve been the 30th year in the city of Jerusalem in Palestine. One of the closest verses tells us that it was the sixth hour of the day when He, in the company of his apostles, partook of the first Holy Supper in history and instituted its celebration for all believe in the Son of God.

Since then, the supper of the Lord Jesus Christ or Holy Supper is one of the most solemn moments for the Church of Christ, which is celebrated with a high sense of piety, faith, thanksgiving, joy and hope.

This commemoration, from its origin, proclaims to the world the sacrifice of Christ and the essential content of the Christian faith. Second, to announce: the second coming of Christ until he comes.
