What is Holy Thursday or Maundy Thursday
Holy Thursday is known as the Christian festival that celebrates the Last Supper of Jesus of Nazareth with his disciples, the institution of the Eucharist and the priestly order, as well as the washing of feet.
As such, all of Christendom, both the Catholic Church and the other Christian churches, commemorate Holy Thursday with processions and eucharistic celebrations.
Holy Thursday takes place during Holy Week, the Thursday before Easter Sunday or Resurrection.
With Holy Thursday, Lent ends and the Easter Triduum begins, that is, the period in which the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus is remembered, which extends from Holy Thursday to Holy Saturday.
Two events of singular importance take place this day according to the Bible: the Last Supper, where the Eucharist and the priesthood are instituted, and the washing of feet.
This day, then, is usually commemorated the institution of the Eucharist through the celebration of the Holy Offices, and the agony and prayer of Jesus are remembered in Gethsemane, in the garden of olive trees, the betrayal of Judas and the arrest of Jesus.
