Maundy Thursday A.D. 2016

Maundy Thursday falls on 24 March this year. On the first day of the Sacred Triduum, we celebrate the institution of the Most Holy Eucharist by our Lord Jesus Christ, and the mandatummaundy or mandy in English—wherein the Lord and Master humbled Himself into washing the feet of His Apostles that they may also wash each other’s feet. On this day, Mass was sung in the Parish of the Most Holy Redeemer in the Diocese of Cubao. Assisting were members of the Societas Ecclesia Dei Sancti Ioseph – Una Voce Philippines.


At the Gospel.
Exémplum enim dedi vobis, ut quemádmodum feci vobis, ita et vos faciátis.

At the Consecration.
Hoc est enim Corpus meum.
Hic est enim Calix Sánguinis mei, novi et aetérni testaménti : mystérium fídei : qui pro vobis et pro multis effundétur in remissiónem peccatórum.

At the distribution of Holy Communion.
Corpus Dómini nostri Iesu Christi custódiet ánimam tuam in vitam aetérnam.

After the dismissal, the Blessed Sacrament was reposed in the monumento, the common name by which the altar of repose or the sepulchre is called in the Philippines.
Pange, lingua, gloriósi
Córporis mystérium,
Sanguinísque pretiósi,
Quem in mundi prétium
Fructus ventris generósi
Rex effúdit géntium.
 
Tantum ergo Sacraméntum
Venerémur cérnui :
Et antíquum documéntum
Novo cedat rítui :
Præstet fides suppleméntum
Sénsuum deféctui.
Genitóri, Genitóque
Laus et jubilátio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedíctio :
Procedénti ab utróque
Compar sit laudátio.
Amen.

After the reposition of the Blessed Sacrament, vespers were recited at once.
O Dómine, quia ego servus tuus : ego servus tuus, et fílius ancíllae tuae.

In the evening, the altars were stripped.
Deus, Deus meus, réspice in me : quare me dereliquísti ? longe a salúte mea verba delictórum meórum.

Ut in omnibus laudetur Dominus.
