DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Jesus Washes the Feet of His Apostles”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that as the Messiah and Master of all peoples, His divine Love is revealed in His unconditional Love and Service; through His Suffering and Death for our Salvation. Ponder on, “How do we witness this “sacrificial love of Jesus” in our daily relationships with others?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
After he had washed the feet of his disciples, Jesus said to them: ‘In all truth I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, no messenger is greater than the one who sent him.
‘Now that you know this, blessed are you 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: ‘He who shares my table takes advantage of me.
‘I tell you this now, before it happens, so that when it does happen you may believe that I am He. In all truth I tell you, whoever welcomes the one I send, welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me, welcomes the one who sent me.’
