The Cenacle (Upper Room) in Jerusalem
The Upper Room in Jerusalem: the room of the Last Supper as the Bread and Wine paid for a multitude, and the fire of the Spirit poured out for the forgiveness of sins.

"On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?". So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him… He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”(Mk 14: 12-13.15). "Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city. When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they used to meet. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers."(Acts 1: 12-14). "Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. Jesus therefore said to him: "What you want to do, do quickly" ... He took the morsel, went out. And it was night "(Jn 13, 26-27.30).
