What Does “Maundy” Mean? the word is derived from the Latin word mandatum , meaning “commandment,” so Maundy refers to the commands Jesus gave his disciples at the Last Supper: to love with humility by serving one another and to remember His sacrifice.
Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. In contrast to joyful Easter celebrations when Christians worship their resurrected Savior, Maundy Thursday services are typically more solemn occasions, marked by the shadow of Jesus’ betrayal.
This is a time for us to reflect upon and consider Jesus’ suffering in the context of His relationship with His disciples and the anticipation of the crucifixion to come as well as the life, character and service He displayed to us and calls us to live in Him.
