Holy Thursday, also the Feast of the Holy Eucharist. On this day, Jesus shares His Last Supper with the Twelve Apostles, where He breaks bread with them and also washes their feet. The washing of the feet was typically done by a slave as it was considered a low job- feet were often covered in dirt and dust. And since Jesus and the Apostles were travelers, coming to Jerusalem for Passover, their feet were particular dirty.

Dirtiness. We often think of being holy as being pure, being clean, but that is only in regards to our hearts and minds and the words we choose to say. But our hands and feet- they should be dirty. Why? If you want a pure heart, it cannot be by quiet prayer alone. It must be through going out into the world, getting your feet and hand dirty by doing work, by serving others, and by doing God’s good work. So go out there! Do good! And when you come home, take the time to wash your feet.
