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 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.” 

Keeping Watch 

Our time of prayer tonight after this service will include elements of Taize worship.  Brother Roger founded the Taize community in France in 1940.  In this community, “heartfelt kindness and simplicity would be the center of everything.”   The music of Taize reflects this simplicity. Thousands of people from around the world flock to France every year to worship with the brothers and to experience the power of worship with candlelight, icons, and simple chants.  Tonight  during our prayer, we will be singing three Taize chants, “Stay with me,” “O Lord, hear my prayer,”  and “Jesus, remember me.”
