Loving to the end

Jesus washes the feet of the Apostles

Jesus washing his Apostle’s feet

In his account of the Last Supper, St John tells us that Christ loved his disciples “to the end”. After washing the apostles’ feet, Our Lord gave them the new commandment to “love one another as I have loved you.” In this meditation we use texts of Scripture, St Josemaria Escriva and Mother Teresa of Calcutta to consider how:

  • We should have a spirit of service, first with those in our family and then with others
  • We are helped to live charity if we see Christ in all those around us
  • If we live charity well, others will see Christ in us and know that we are his disciples
  • We can live charity, as Christ does, by forgiving those who have hurt us, by our patience and kindness, and by loving everyone, especially those we find most difficult
