The Meaning of Maundy

Today is [Great & ]Holy Thursday, Maundy Thursday, Thursday of Mysteries, and the Thursday before Easter. Today is probably not the actual anniversary of anything, but that by no account leaves it devoid of meaning.

Today is the representation of the day that no longer did we, civilization-based humans, need to just follow God through rules. Today is the representation of when God surpassed an image and became part of us by coming through one of us; when we could be in direct communion with God at all times because God was henceforth in us.

Jesus sat down with his closest followers and gave them physical food and drink to represent spiritual food and drink. As physical food and drink enters us and our bodies convert it to calories, spiritual food and drink enters us and our hearts turn it to love. Our bodies are born with the mechanism to convert food into energy as well as that love mechanism. Losing focus of God through civilization and human nature causes that mechanism to be forgotten. Christ restores it completely; no matter what damage you have done to it in the past. Thereafter your heart’s voice is clearer, your heart softer and purer, and if you listen to it and act upon God’s whisper, you will be transformed.

May it be so; Amen. Glory be to that Power, that Beauty, and that Light.
