Lenten Thought for the Day, Thursday, April 17, 2014
If, I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ouhgt ot 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. John 13:14-15
Jesus' last act was a very practical one. The apostles had come in off the dirty, dusty street and they needed to wash before they partook of the Passover meal. With towel and pan inhand, Jesus stooped to wash the feet of those he loved. He tenderly washed and dried these feet - a simple act, but one the Church, even after two thousand years, cannot forget.
Be aware of daily tasks today and ask God to help you to do these tasks with great love.
