Last night on Holy Thursday, we Christians commemorated the institution of the Eucharist, where Christ gave wholly of himself. An extremely important event took place that night when he also took on the role of a slave and washed the feet of those present. He told them, “Do you know what I have done to you? If I, as your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you should also do to others.” Do we really get that?
Today, on Good Friday, we commemorate Jesus’ death by crucifixion. Jesus – the Incarnate Word – the ultimate non-violent one. Do we really get that?
