View Full Version : Maundy Thursday

Just a little oddity from the courts:. .. .If you appear before magistrates today and they send you inside for seven days you will be released this afternoon. That is because half the sentence is served, the half day is disregarded, and prisons do not release on weekends or Bank Holidays.. .. .So if you feel like telling your local Bench what you think of them today's the day. Unless, of course, they have a sense of humour failure and make it fourteen days. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Remember reading somewhere that the amount of money HRH gives out is related to her age. Is that right or should I change my reading material?

I think Maundy is from the Latin. I do know that the Pope washes the feet of 12 of the congregation during the Maundy Thursday service at St Peters and in some High Anglican Churches the Vicar does likewise, selecting 12 of the Congregation to represent the 12 Apostles, as Christ did at the Last Supper. This is called the Mandatum I believe.. .. .Im sure the both the Latin Scholars and the RCs out there will correct me if Im wrong.. .. .A Happy Easter to you all from . .TG <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" />

Maundy Thursday, from Old French mandé, . .. .from the old Latin name for the day, "Dies Mandatum," i.e. "the day of the new commandment.". . . .from Jesus' words in John 13:34. "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another".
