Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday, Year A

Holy Week: Through Death to Life Series

Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday, marks the last conversation Jesus has with his disciples, a conversation grounded in what he calls a new commandment (mandatum in Latin, hence our English word “Maundy”). He illustrates and underscores the new commandment by washing the disciples’ feet: “Love one another as I have loved you.” View the Holy Week: Through Death to Life series overview »
