Model to follow

Washing of the Feet America Magazine

Greetings on this the Holy Thursday Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper
Readings: Ex 12:1-8, 11-14; PS 116:12-13, 15-16bc, 17-18; 1 Cor 11:23-26; Jn 13:1-15

Note: COVID precautions preclude the washing of the feet tonight. We are so close to the end of the crisis we’d prefer not to make things regress.

So when he had washed their feet
and put his garments back on and reclined at table again,
he said to them, “Do you realize what I have done for you?
You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am.
If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet,
you ought to wash one another’s feet.
I have given you a model to follow,
so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
