Easter Sunday is about Resurrection!

The answer is in the old Latin translation of the Bible, called the “Vulgate”. There John 13:34 reads: Mandatum novum do vobis …  which means  “a new commandment (mandatum) I give you … ” “Maundy” is derived from mandatum, Latin for “commandment.” And the text goes on, “that you love one another.”

During the service on Maundy Thursday:
Reflect and meditate on the words associated with the stations of the cross:   words of grace, love, hope, agony, suffering, finality, and rest.
Remember the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the atonement of our sins.
Recognize the gravity of our sin that caused him the agony.
Repent and turn to God for forgiveness.
