Mass of the Lord's Supper with the washing of the feet

GETTYThe Queen will honour the Maundy Thursday's tradition at tomorrow's mass

Maundy Thursday is also known as Covenant Thursday, Holy Thursday, and Thursday of Mysteries. The Holy Thursday practice hearkens back to Jesus washing the feet of his disciples before the Last Supper.

On Maundy Thursday, Christians remember Jesus' Last Supper with his apostles.

The church's parish priest Joseph Stephen, 67, said that Catholics celebrate a number of events on this day. Besides prayer services, processions and veiling of the Cross, another highlight of the day will be the enactment of the 14 Stations of the Cross which commemorate that commemorate Jesus Christ's last day on earth as a man. Thousands of devotees will gather in the open-for-all procession which will begin from Padri-ki-haveli around 4pm. There were two symbolic moments during Maundy Thursday.

Before washing the feet of 12 prisoners, Pope Francis told them and hundreds of inmates to remember that Jesus constantly stands before them with love, ready to cleanse their sins and forgive them.

.

So he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.

As part of the celebration of Mass there, he will kneel down with a towel and a basin of water to wash the feet of twelve inmates, imitating Jesus' gesture of humility and service.

This is because Jesus "commanded" the disciples to think of him when they broke bread and wine together after he was killed. They shared the food among themselves.

"In his earthly life and still today, the pope said, Jesus goes to "people who are thrown away by society, at least for a while", and he says to them, "'You are important to me, ' and Jesus comes to serve us". "We also receive the love commandment, which symbolises the feet washing ceremony, and the institution of Holy Eucharist", he told Malay Mail. "As I have loved you so you must love one another (John 13:34)".

During the meal he is said to have taken the bread and wine and offered them to the disciples saying they were his body and blood.
