cenacle

(Latin: camaculum, dining-room)

The upper room in Jerusalem where Our Saviour celebrated the Paschal Supper, instituted the Blessed Sacrament, washed the feet of His Apostles, and gave the wonderful discourse contained in the Gospel of Saint John. There He appeared to His Apostles eight days after His death. In the same place the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles.
