Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 18, 2019 - Maundy Thursday
Gospel: John 13:1-15
Do you know what I have done to you? - Jn 13:12
The Washing of the feet is one of the common traditions being done during Holy Week. In our gospel today, Peter wanted himself to be washed by Jesus for his own intentions. Today, we are invited to deeply reflect in the real intention of Jesus why he desires to wash our own feet. He wants us to do the same to other people. The experience of love from Jesus should reach other people who are needing it right now.
Mother Mary, we entrust to you concrete persons whom we want to experience and receive God’s gracious love and fullness of mercy. Amen.
