A reflection for the Wednesday of Holy Week — 2 Comments

  1. Ian, in Dublin we used to get our Easter school holidays on Spy Wednesday and I’ve know the term since then. Thursday of Holy week was known as Holy Thursday when I was growing up. We seldom used the term Maundy Thursday although it’s in general use in the C of I today.

  2. When I moved to Dublin in 1999, I was told my use of the term “Maundy Thursday” marked me out as English, but it was what was printed in the Alternative Prayer Book.
