Unless I Wash You - Holy Thursday 2019

April 19, 2019

Foot washing was needed after a long journey but, in Peter’s mind and in the “wisdom of the day,” it was not to be done by the Master; it was the work of slaves or servants. Still, Jesus insisted, “Unless I wash you, you will have no inheritance with me.” Gathered with His disciples in an Upper Room, “He loved His own in the world and He loved them to the end.” Jesus did this by means of two sacred actions: by washing the feet of His disciples and then giving them His own Body and Blood. These two actions are woven together in the life of Jesus; and they can and should be woven together in our lives.
