Many agree that term “Maundy” has a connection to the Latin word “mandatum”, means “Commandment”. This comes from the Gospel of John 13:34.
In Latin it is: “Mandatum novum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos”.
This means: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you”. Jesus gave his disciples a new way of life as they werecelebrating the Passover. It is the law of Love and Service.
Let us live this commandment…
Wish you all a Holy Maundy Thursday…
