MAUNDY Thursday

, is the Thursday in Passion week; which was called Maundy or Mandate Thursday, from the command which Christ gave his apostles to commemorate him in the Lord's Supper, which he this day instituted; or from the new commandment which he gave them to love one another, after he had washed their feet as a token of his love to them.
