Holy Thursday Healing Love

It’s Holy Thursday. Today we are challenged by Christ’s example to join the “Order of the Towel” washing the feet of others literally and figuratively in the ways we are led.

But something struck me today. Flash back to the beginning of Lent opening our hearts to be embraced by Christ. Today, before Jesus challenges the disciples in the upper room to wash each others’ feet, He washes their feet.

Peter persisted, “You’re not going to wash my feet—ever!”  Jesus said, “If I don’t wash you, you can’t be part of what I’m doing.” (John 13:8-9)

Are we letting Jesus have a go at our feet?

Our weary, worn out, smudged and dirty feet?

Are we letting Him have a go at the weary, worn out bits and pieces of our hearts?

Are we opening our hearts to the healing embrace of His love that washes smudged hurts and scarred dirt away?

The fountain of His everlasting love that never runs dry?

The hug of His love that takes our fears away?

grace, peace & healing Love

    I’m clinging to Pope Francis’s quote, especially now. Gee, it’s sure going to be an odd Holy Thursday — we’re blessed to have Masses online though!
