Ready for the Mandatum
The chapel is ready for the beginning of the Holy Week Ceremonies.
I am lucky enough this year to be able to carry out the washing of the feet. I do not have the luxury of having 12 men but I will do my best - I will wash the feast of 5 men.
I, unlike the Holy Father so it seems, am not important enough to do what I like with the liturgy and will obey the Church.
I do not like the fact that the Pope is washing women's feet. If he wants to change the law he can... but I can't. Ironic isn't that the more humble you are the more willful you can be.
