Until a few years ago, I had never heard of Maundy Thursday, which is the Thursday before Easter Sunday.

Maundy Thursday focuses on two important events leading up the the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

First: Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with his disciples, and thereby instituted the Last Supper, also called Communion.

Second: Jesus washed his disciples feet as an act of humility and service, setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility.

Maundy is a word derived from the Latin word for "command." Jesus commanded his disciples at the Last Supper to love and serve each other.
