  • Washing of the feet

    In your photo coverage of Holy Week it would have been nice to have used a picture of a parish foot-washing. There are still parishes that don't include it in the Holy Thursday liturgy, despite its importance in showing what Jesus is teaching us. (And despite the example of the pope washing the feet even of non-Catholic males.) My parish, Our Lady Queen of Peace, had a ceremony that included a cross-section of parishioners: old, young, men, women and children. I was especially pleased to see a member of the L'Arche community among those whose feet were washed.
