What’s So Maundy about This Thursday?

April 9, 2020

Politicians use the the word.

After winning an election, they tend to say they have a “mandate from the people.” They mean they’ve been told what to do.

Mandate and Maundy are from the same Latin word, mandatum, literally meaning “commandment.”

It’s used in churches because of what Christ Jesus said and did in John 13, especially verse 34.

I leave it to you to look that up today.

It’s serious stuff.

In a seriously loving way.
