Maundy Thursday, The Last Supper


Hamáre Khudáwand ká ákhirí kháná

nw dhone kí rasm



Having lost so much of the tradition of the Latin language, it is difficult for many to understand why Holy Thursday is often referred to as Maundy Thursday. The word Maundy derives from Mandatum, the first word of the Office of The Washing of the Feet.

Mandatum novum do vobis: ut diligatis invicem,
sicut delexi vos, dicit Dominus.
Ps. Beati immaculate iin via: qui ambulant in lege Domini. 
Mandatum novum.

A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another,
as I have loved you, says the Lord.
Ps. Blessed are the undefiled in the way: who walk in the law of the Lord. 
A new commandment.

Aid to the Church in Need : Night of Witness


Archbishop Joseph Coutts
Archbishop Joseph Coutts


Archbishop Joseph Coutts from Pakistan along with other guests will be taking part in the Night of Witness on 17th May 2012.

Below are the details from Aid to the Church in Need


17 May 2012 17:30
Westminster Cathedral
Ambrosden Avenue
London
SW1P 1QW
"[Religious freedom is] the first of the human rights, for it expresses the most fundamental reality of the person."– Pope Benedict XVI
Will you join with us and persecuted Christians around the world as we come 'Together in Faith' this May?
Our Night of Witness aims to bring religious freedom to the forefront of public debate and give a voice to millions of suffering Christians around the world.
As attacks against Christians – and Christianity itself – become more prevalent, please help us to give a voice to the persecuted Church.
Taking our lead from Pope Benedict XVI, we are hosting a public witness event at Westminster Cathedral and on the cathedral piazza, to:
  • Give a voice to Christians and others persecuted for their faith
  • Remind society of the gift of religious liberty
  • Call on the government to make religious freedom a diplomatic priority

Guests who have agreed to take part in the Night of Witness include:

NB We regret that Monsignor Roko Taban Mousa from Sudan will no longer be able to join us.
  • Archbishop Joseph Coutts from Pakistan
  • Bishop Joannes Zakaria from Egypt
  • Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton
  • Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster – greeting participants on the piazza
  • British Pakistani Christian Association
  • Iraqi Christians in Need
  • Priests and faithful from Iraq, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Lithuania

Performers on the Night of Witness include:

  • Catholic band ooberfuse, winners of the World Youth Day 2011 global song contest
  • Eliot Smith Dance Company debuting new piece Persecuted and Forgotten
  • Singer Helen Munt
  • West End Gospel Choir
  • Urdu Christian musician Hammad Baily
  • Catholic poet Sarah de Nordwall

Programme for the Night of Witness

Please join us for all or part of this inspiring evening:
5.30pm Sung Mass to remember the modern-day martyrs to the Faith, concelebrated by Archbishop Joseph Coutts of Karachi, Pakistan, Bishop Joannes Zakaria of Luxor, Egypt, and Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton.
6.30pm Rally for Religious Freedom on the cathedral piazza, celebrating our faith through speeches, music, drama, dance, poetry and film, with groups from Iraqi, Pakistani, Sudanese and Egyptian communities in the UK, as well as others.
7.30-8.30pm Solemn, candlelit vigil in Westminster Cathedral – in thanksgiving for the inspirational sacrifice of Christians today.

Please come 'Together in Faith' as Christians to make our concerns heard

Through music, prayer and speeches by guests from Pakistan, Egypt and the UK we will explore what it means to be a Christian today – both at home and abroad. And, through examples of the courage and faith of others, we can grow in faith
and resolve 'to stand in the public square and proclaim the Lord'. 
The vigil will also be a public statement about our own right to religious freedom.
To find out how you, your parish, school or group can participate please email witness@acnuk.orgor call us on 020 8642 8668.
