Have you ever had a pedicure or foot massage? If you have, you know how wonderful it feels to sit back and relax while you are being pampered. It is a feeling we would all like to experience – it would be great to have someone make us feel special by treating us well and taking care of us.
Holy Thursday will soon be approaching. We will read about how Jesus washed the feet of his apostles as an example of how we should be treating each other. We are called to not only love each other but to serve one another. We do this because Jesus asked it of us and also because He knew how much our fellow man needs to be welcomed, valued and enriched by Christ. We may be the way God has chosen to show himself to our brothers and sisters. Jesus showed by example and did His Father’s will. Now it is our turn to step up and to do our Father’s will by treating our brothers and sisters well and taking care of their needs.
