Maundy Thursday

Holy Thursday
Thursday of the Holy Week is also known as "Maundy Thursday." The word maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum (commandment). "I give you a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you." (John 13:34)
On Thursday, after washing the feet of the disciples, Jesus celebrated Passover, instituting the Sacrament of Holy Communion. He went to Gethsemane to pray, where he was arrested by the Temple guard and taken to an illegal night session of the Jewish court, the Sanhedrin.
