"The name "Maundy" comes from the Latin antiphon Mandatum Novum, or "a new mandate."
This new mandate from Jesus is taken from John 13:34 - Love one another as I have loved you."
After attending the Be Still Recollection with the whole family yesterday, we rested for a while before ending the Holy Thursday visiting several beautiful churches here in the south for our annual Visita Iglesia. It was a day filled with prayers and songs, of renewed faith and hope. (my current favorite worship song! :))
Btw, Be Still, a Holy Week recollection of Feast Alabang, will end tomorrow, Saturday, from 8am to 12pm at The Filinvest Tent, Alabang (near Acacia Hotel). I invite you all to a morning of worship songs and talks (guest speaker for tomorrow is Father Jerry Orbos with Fatima). Everybody's welcome to walk-in, and recollection is FREE of charge! :)
Also, the whole Light of Jesus community will celebrate the Grand Easter Feast "UNBOUNDED" this Sunday at the SMX Convention Center from 8am to 12pm with our Feast Builder Bro. Bo Sanchez. No entrance fees, and open for all!
Be blessed! I hope to see you there. :)
The Feast Alabang is a weekly Catholic Prayer Meeting of the Light of Jesus (LOJ) Family, aimed at celebrating and spreading God’s love through worship and inspirational talks. The LOJ Family is headed by lay preacher, Bo Sanchez. The Feast is held at the Valle Verde Country Club in Pasig City but, eventually, local Feasts were created in different areas of Metro Manila to allow more people to experience what can best be described as “one of the happiest places on earth.” (read more here)
