Today is Holy Thursday, the beginning of the most sacred few days of the year for Catholics and Christians throughout the world as we prepare for Easter - the reason for our faith. Jesus instituted the Eucharist today, which is why Catholics celebrate Mass to this day (he said "this is my body", "do this in remembrance of me"). And the apostles became the first priests. Jesus left them to carry on his work, and I think it's legit amazing that Catholicism can trace its history back to these first believers. Catholicism isn't a spectator religion. When Jesus washed the apostles feet today, he did so as an example of how our faith is to be lived: "you also ought to wash each other's feet". What does that look like for you? Let's ponder that. And I highly recommend getting to Mass tonight where the priest will wash feet in remembrance of the last supper!
