Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Exodus 12:1-8, 11-14, Ps 116B, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, John 13:1-15

I am pompous like Peter

Would I want Jesus to wash my feet right now? Would I like a bit more time to appear more worthy? Would I want to wash the feet of someone who has betrayed me and hurt me deeply? I need to contemplate these questions as I witness what Jesus Christ is doing. If I want to share food at his table and if I want a share in his Cross and Resurrection he expects nothing less than total self-sacrificing, love-filled service from me. Christ knows I need his help and gives himself to me in the Eucharist so that I may have humility in common with him.
