What Exactly Is "Maundy"?
As in Maundy Thursday

From John 31:34 The Thursday before Easter, observed in commemoration of Jesus Christ’s institution of the Eucharist. The name is taken from an anthem sung in Roman Catholic churches on that day: Mandatum novum do vobis” (“a new commandment I give to you”.)

Our Mass tonight was Novus Ordo but still very beautiful. During the washing of the feet our choir sang Ubi Caritas word-for-word, in Latin, exactly as it is in the 1962 Baronias Press hand missal (mine is the Summorum Pontificum edition).

Tomorrow the wife, kids and I will drive two hours west to St. Rose of Lima parish in Quincy, which is staffed by an FSSP priest, for the Office of Good Friday as it is done in the 1962 Missale Romanum.
