Holy Thursday / Maundy Thursday / Great Thursday (Christian)
The Thursday before Easter, commemorates Christ’s Last Supper with the Apostles.
On this day four events are commemorated: the washing of the Disciples’ feet by Jesus Christ, the institution of the Mystery of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper, the agony of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal of Christ by Judas.*
It is that brief moment in time when we feel inept, embarassed, unsure, or uneasy. They are those brief seconds which seem like minutes and those minutes which seem like hours. It is the time we lose some of our lofty self image. It is that humbling period of time when confidence is replaced by uncertainty and the arrogant become mere mortals again.**
