Triduum: Day One

"When the Lord of the world comes and undertakes the slave's task of foot washing which is an illustration of the way he washes our feet throughout all our lives we have a totally different picture.

God doesn't want to trample on us, but kneels down before us so as to exalt us. The mystery of the greatness of God is seen precisely in the fact that he can be small...

Only when power is changed from the inside and we accept Jesus and his way of life, whose whole self is there in the action of the foot washing, only then can the world be healed and the people be able to live to peace with one another."

Benedict XVI

Make peace within my soul and with others. Lord.

Mold me as an instrument of your peace.

Make my feet walk in the ways of peace.
