Maundy Thursday marks three key events in Jesus’ last week: his washing of his disciples’ feet, his institution of the Lord’s Supper, and his new commandment to love one another. The name “Maundy Thursday” comes from the Latin mandatum novum, referring to the “new commandment” Jesus taught his disciples.
As we get closer to Easter Sunday, may we reflect on what it means to love and serve others as Christ has loved and served us.
Rid me of myself, I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross
“Lead Me to the Cross”
