Dear Friend in the Lord,

Humble Service: In today’s Gospel, Jesus washed the feet of all His disciples, including Judas’ who betrayed Him to His Death.  Jesus then proclaimed, “No servant is greater than his master”; so be humble servants of the Good News to one another and all peoples. Are we humble and faithful servants of Jesus?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 13:16-20

After he had washed the feet of his disciples, Jesus said to them: ‘I tell you modst solemnly, no servant is greater than his master, no messenger is greater than the one who sent him.

‘Now that you know this, happiness will be yours if you behave accordingly. I am not speaking about all of you: I know the ones I have chosen; but what scripture says must be fulfilled: Someone who shares my table rebels against me.

‘I tell you this now, before it happens, so that when it does happen you may believe that I am He. I tell you most solemnly, whoever welcomes the one I send, welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me, welcomes the one who sent me.’
