Mount Athos icon of the Last Supper. Lithography on natural wood carved by hand.
According to church tradition, the Last Supper happened the day before the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Christ washed the feet of the Twelve Disciples and offered them bread and wine, saying: "Eat of my body" and "drink of my blood." This day was named Holy Thursday during which the Mystery of the Divine Eucharist took place.
Apolytikion of Holy Thursday - Last Supper
Plagal of the Fourth Tone
As the glorious disciples, in the washing of the feet, were enlightened, the profane Judas, ravaged by greed, was benighted. And to the lawless judges he surrenders You the just judge. Consider, you who love money, the one who hanged himself for the sake of it. Shun the insatiate heart that could dare such a deed against the Teacher. Lord, benevolent above all humans, glory to You.
