 Maundy Thursday


Maundy Thursday marks the beginning of the Triduum, the last three days of Holy Week, in which our worship flows in one continuous liturgy, beginning with the Maundy Thursday service.  “Time is suspended as we ponder and celebrate the great mysteries of our redemption.” 


The observance of the Triduum begins on Maundy Thursday.  The word “Maundy” is derived from Middle English, Old French and from the Latin word mandatum, meaning “commandment,” the first word of the phrase “Mandatum novum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos” (“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another, as I have loved you”), the statement we hear from Jesus to his disciples in tonight’s gospel reading. 


Dennis Michno explains that this service “initiates a time of watching, waiting and contemplating, as we enter into the commemoration of the mystery of our redemption.  The gift of love in the Sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood is the focus; the demonstration of self-giving in the washing of feet is a fitting symbol; the watch through the night and the continuations of this liturgy in that of Good Friday is the timelessness of silence, the silence of God.”


We thank Marilyn Newman for the gift of her harp music tonight.
