The Pope speaks about Holy Thursday:

On the evening of Holy Thursday "we will celebrate the moment of the institution of the Eucharist" when Christ, 
"in the species of the bread and the wine, makes Himself truly present with the Body He gave and the Blood He
split as a sacrifice of the New Covenant. At the same time He made the Apostles and their successors ministers
of this Sacrament, which He consigned to His Church as the supreme proof of His love".

- Pope Benedict XVI, Wedneday Audience, March 31, 2010
