Christ shows us the full extent of God’s love for us. The Church calls this day Maundy because of Jesus’ new command in the Gospel that his followers love one another, to focus on Christ’s command for humility and love. Christ shows the full extent of his love in both service and sacrifice. He loves us more than life and feeds us his flesh and blood to prove it. Reconciled to God through the flesh and blood of Christ, we follow his command to love each other.
