Maundy Thursday

The designation “Maundy” is thought to be an English corruption of the Latin mandatum, as in the “new commandment” (novum mandatum), that Jesus gave his disciples on this night: “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another” (John 13:34).

Gracious God,
On this day of Holy Week, we remember the command Your Son gave us to love one another. As we look toward the the final days of this week, we are in awe of the reality that he so perfectly obeyed this command. He did what we can only try to do through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Now and always, impart to us Father, Son and Spirit a deeper understanding of this mandate and empower us to love others sacrificially. In the perfect name of Jesus, Amen and amen!
