Today, Holy Thursday, we commemorate the Last Supper, the final meal Jesus shared with his disciples in Jerusalem prior to his fateful arrest, his two trials, and his crucifixion. Via Catholic Online: “The cup used by Jesus [at the Last Supper] is known as the Holy Grail. Although it has been rumored to exist throughout history, it is almost certainly lost to time. There is no reason to believe the cup would have been outstanding in any way, and was likely a typical drinking vessel, indistinguishable from many others. Still, many myths continue to revolve around the artifact, and it remains a target for treasure seekers and a subject of entertainment.” More details about the quest for the Holy Grail are available here.
