Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter, and it is an important Christian holiday that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles and the Washing of the Feet.
According to the Gospel of Luke, chapter 22, he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." After the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you".
According to Gospel of John, chapter 13, while the meal was in progress, he wrapped a towel around his waist, poured water into a basin, and began to wash his disciples' feet. This is to set examples for his disciples that "no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him."
