Maundy Thursday

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Proper: First Part

The Eucharist begins in the usual manner, using the following Collect, Psalm, and Lessons.

Collect

I. God our Father, whose Son our Lord Jesus Christ in a wonderful Sacrament hath left unto us a memorial of his passion: Grant us so to venerate the sacred mysteries of his Body and Blood, that we may ever perceive within ourselves the fruit of his redemption; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

II. God our Father, whose Son our Lord Jesus Christ in a wonderful Sacrament has left us a memorial of his passion: Grant us so to venerate the sacred mysteries of his Body and Blood, that we may ever perceive within ourselves the fruit of his redemption; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Old Testament Exod. 12-14a
Psalm Ps. 78:14-20, 23-25
Epistle 1 Cor. 11:23-26(27-32)
Gospel John 13:1-15, or Luke 22:14-30

When observed, the ceremony of the washing of feet appropriately follows the Gospel and homily.

During the ceremony, the following or other suitable anthems may be sung or said.

Anthem 1

The Lord Jesus, after he had supped with his disciples and had washed their feet, said to them, "Do you know what I, your Lord and Master, have done to you? I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done."

Anthem 2

Peace is my last gift to you, my own peace I now leave with you;
peace which the world cannot give, I give to you.

I give you a new commandment: Love one another as I have loved you.

Peace is my last gift to you, my own peace I now leave with you;
peace which the world cannot give, I give to you.

Anthem 3

By this shall the world know that you are my disciples: That you have love for one another.

The service continues with the Prayers of the People.

Because the Holy Communion is administered from the reserved Sacrament on Good Friday, the Sacrament for that purpose is consecrated at this service.

Prayer over the Gifts

Lord, make us worthy to celebrate these mysteries. Each time we offer this memorial sacrifice the work of our redemption is accomplished. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

Preface Preface 9 - Holy Week or Preface 14 - The Body and Blood of Christ; The Holy Eucharist

When the Roman Canon (Old English Translation) is used, the Maundy Thursday form of Who the day before he suffered is said; in the Roman Canon, the Holy Thursday forms of Father, accept this offering and of The day before he suffered are said.

The Mass concludes with the Postcommunion Prayer.
