Go and Do the Same

"I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”

The Shrine of Christ's Passion
A lot to think about today! As we think about Jesus' life and all He did for others in His short time on earth, we can only think, "What a tough act to follow." And yet, He expects us to use His life as a model for our own. He expects us to "be about our Father's business." He expects us to serve one another, to offer others a healing touch, to welcome the little ones, to lead the blind, to preach the good news, to resist temptation, to pray, to love, to break bread together, to wash feet. Jesus Christ has become man and dwells among us and has given us a model to follow. Every day, we are reminded by the Scripture readings just what it is we are to do. Tonight as we gather around the Table of the Lord, as our feet are washed, as we join in the Supper, we are reminded of what we are to pass on, in remembrance, and because we "should".
