Maundy Thursday

THe Last Supper

Today is MAundy Thursday.I should go to the Catholic Church for the service but it's conflict with the ORT Methodist CHurch which my husband go. So, this evening I decide to attend the service at the ORTUMC.

Maundy Thursday is also called Holy Thursday is a service to commemorate Jesus Last Supper and the beginning of our sacrament. the Lord Supper. The word Maundy comes from the latin mandatum, which means "commandment". At the last supper Jesus gave the disciples a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them.Prior to breaking the bread with the disciples. Jesus was their feet. Maundy Thursday worship services include Holy Communion and sometimes foot washing as well.
