My Reflection for March 28, Holy Thursday: Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper John 13:1-15

My Reflection:
What would we do if we know that we are to have the Last Supper of our lives? We will be doing something for ourselves; perhaps we will isolate ourselves and pray with all seriousness before our God.

Jesus knew beforehand that He would be having His Last Supper but instead of doing something for himself. He washed the feet of the apostles; it was leadership by example personified. He did that act of humility for the reason that He wanted to strongly imprint into the minds of the apostles and to us also. That those who truly desire to follow Him must first learn to become humble and learn to serve and not to be served.

Many are not inclined to follow our faith or many are inclined to embrace other faiths because they don’t see the humility of Jesus in us. And who is to blame for this? No other than many of us because we fail to embrace Jesus template of humility.

This Holy Thursday let us reflect and ponder on these words of Jesus in the gospel: I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do (John 13:15).”
