Happy Easter, from Resurrection Parish
“But so that the Scripture might be fulfilled . . . ” (John 13:18)
Today’s gospel comes just after Jesus has washed the feet of his disciples. Which we celebrated on Holy Thursday evening at “the supper of the Lord.” Jesus’ action—doing the most menial task of the lowest servant—is specifically intended as a model for his disciples. No slave is greater than his master, says Jesus, but the true “master” is the one who serves all the others!
What concrete gesture can you do today to assist others, whether in your family, among your friends, at work, or in the community? Perhaps volunteer for some community service, perhaps visit someone who has been isolated, perhaps offer assistance to someone in need.
