We are all called to serve others.

“If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”
Jesus repeatedly called those who were with him to follow him.
He then gave us plenty of examples to follow…examples of dying to ourselves, dying to our ego’s selfish desires, so that we could truly live.
Today’s scripture gives us one of those amazing examples.
In John’s gospel there is no mention of the Eucharist at the Last Supper. In its place, Jesus washes his disciples’ feet.
The switch is no accident.
It’s to show us that when we eat the Eucharist (the Body of Christ)…Jesus literally becomes part of us. We are then meant to become Christ to the world…to wash the feet of others…to be servants.
Jesus tells us this quite explicitly in today’s scripture.
Each of us must ask ourselves: How am I following his example?
