¿Cuál es el significado de Jueves Santo?

Como Jueves Santo se conoce la festividad cristiana que celebra la última cena de Jesús de Nazaret con sus discípulos, la institución de la eucaristía y del orden sacerdotal, así como el lavatorio de pies.

Como tal, toda la cristiandad, tanto la Iglesia católica como las otras iglesias cristianas, conmemora el Jueves Santo con procesiones y celebraciones eucarísticas.

El Jueves Santo tiene lugar durante la Semana Santa, el jueves anterior al Domingo de Pascua o de Resurrección.

Con el Jueves Santo acaba la Cuaresma y se inicia el Triduo Pascual, es decir, el periodo en que se recuerda la pasión, muerte y resurrección de Jesús, que se extiende del Jueves Santo al Sábado Santo.

Dos eventos de singular importancia tienen lugar este día según la Biblia: la última cena, donde se instituye la eucaristía y el sacerdocio, y el lavatorio de pies.

Este día, pues, se suele conmemorar la institución de la eucaristía mediante la celebración de los Santos Oficios, y se recuerda la agonía y oración de Jesús en Getsemaní, en el jardín de los olivos, la traición de Judas y el arresto de Jesús.

Última cena

Como última cena se conoce la comida que, en celebración de la Pascua, compartió Jesús con sus discípulos. En ella instituyó la eucaristía, también llamada comunión, en la cual Cristo deja su cuerpo y sangre transustanciados en pan y vino.

San Lucas, en el Nuevo Testamento, lo relata así: “Entonces tomó el pan y, habiendo dado las gracias, lo partió y les dio, diciendo: ‘Esto es mi cuerpo, que por vosotros es dado; haced esto en memoria mía’. Asimismo, tomó también la copa, después de que hubo cenado, diciendo: ‘Esta copa es el nuevo convenio en mi sangre, que por vosotros se derrama’” (Lucas, 22: 19-20).

Lavatorio de pies

Como lavatorio de pies del Jueves Santo ​se denomina el evento en el cual Jesús, como un acto de humildad, lava los pies a sus discípulos, con la finalidad de dar un ejemplo de amor y servicio a los semejantes. De allí se desprende el mandamiento que Jesús hizo a sus discípulos: que debían amarse y servirse unos a otros.

Visita a los 7 templos

Una de las costumbres asociadas a la celebración del Jueves Santo es la tradicional visita a las siete iglesias o siete templos, que se puede realizar entre la noche de Jueves Santo y la mañana de Viernes Santo. Su finalidad, como tal, es agradecer a Jesucristo el don la de eucaristía y el sacerdocio, que instituyó aquella noche.

Monumento de Jueves Santo

Existe también la tradición de levantar el monumento de Jueves Santo, que es la capilla o altar donde se reserva la hostia consagrada desde el Jueves Santo al Viernes Santo. Ante él, se suele dar gracias al Señor por su pasión, con la cual redimió, según las Escrituras, a la humanidad.
