Holy Thursday

As the day draws to a close, I think back on the Gospel reading for today. Jesus washes the feet of His disciples and tells them that they must do the same. It is the epitome of servant leadership. And it is a beautiful thing.

“Love wills the good of the other as other,” according to Thomas Aquinas. And Jesus shows us this time and again. But it is in the ultimate gift of Himself that we see what  perfect love looks like.  Self-giving to ensure that others are taken care of out of love for them and for the One who made them is what Holy Thursday is all about.

I hope your Triduum started gratefully. God became man to save us. What began 3 years ago is coming to its Climax. Let us move forward, however awful we know it will be, let us gratefully, tearfully, go on toward Good Friday…
