We celebrate the Holy Meal which Jesus began in the Upper Room on the night before his crucifixion. “Maundy” refers to the new commandment (novum mandatum in Latin) to “love one another,” which Jesus gave to his disciples as he washed their feet during this meal (John 13:34). Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection are made present to us in this meal.
