Maundy Thursday, A New Commandment

Footwashing_Jesus washing his disciples feet-Dinah Rose

“That is why we preach this way. We wish to shake our baptized people out of habits that threaten to make them practically baptized pagans, idolaters of their money and power. What sort of baptized persons are these? Those who want to bear the mark of the Spirit and the fire that Christ baptizes with must take the risk of renouncing everything and seeking only God’s reign and justice.”

Oscar Arnulfo Romero, El Salvador, Martyr – 1980
