began to wash the disciples’ feet

“So, during supper, fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God, he rose from supper and took off his outer garments. He took a towel and tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel around his waist.” (JN 13: 2-5)

We can’t prepare ourselves properly for a meeting with Our Lord, especially with the Resurrected One. Only He can prepare us—“fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power and that he had come from God . . . he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel around his waist.” He is our Redeemer, He is our Savior, He is Our God, and only God can reunite us with Himself.

“I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
