Happy Holy Thursday as we start our Sacred Triduum.
Can you imagine how dirty people’s feet were during the time of Christ? No wonder it was the role of the slave to wash the feet of the wealthy. No one else would want to do it.
So you can understand Peter’s shock at the site of Jesus stooping down to wash his feet. Why in the world would this wise and holy man do such a thing? Yet the significance of this act of humility is so profound that some have called it the gospel in miniature, some have likened it to the Eucharist.
God so loved the world that he sent his Son to save us and he still bends down at every Mass to teach us and feed us. He sends his Son at every Mass so that we can be filled with his life and transformed into his image!
On this Holy Thursday, focus on the truth: Jesus loves you so much that he is willing to wash your feet. He cares for you so deeply that he wants to tend to your every need, even to the point of feeding you with his Bread of Life and Cup of his own Blood! How loving and generous is our God!
