Observing Holy Week

The Holy Week started last Sunday or what we call Palm Sunday. It is the triumphant entry of Jesus to Jerusalem. For most Christians, Holy Week is observed as a time for meditations and reflections. Some people do fasting and others do what they usually do.

Today is Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday. This is the day that the Jews celebrates the Passover. The Passover is the passing over of death to once family with the blood of a lamb on their door. This was the plague brought down before the exodus of Israelites from Egypt. This is also the day that Jesus Christ had his Last Supper with his disciples followed by the washing of the feet.

Do you wonder why it is called Maundy Thursday? Maundy comes from a latin word meaning "Command". On Maundy Thursday, the Maundy refers to Jesus Christ's commandment to the disciples to love and serve one another which was given during the last supper. So the washing of the feet is Jesus Christ act of love and service to others.
