BASIC R.C. BELIEF
Maundy: Latin, command. It gets its name from the command to wash one
another's feet. The Pope, every year on Maundy Thursday, publicly washes
the feet of 12 seminarians as a demonstration of his humility (John 13:14).
On Maundy Thursday, Holy Oil is blessed by the Bishops.
A converted Roman Catholic told me that, in her parish, on Maundy Thursday,
a Jewish Passover meal (Seder) was observed. It is possible that this was
done for ecumenical purposes.
