The greater example that inspires us at the Holy Week is the full donation of Christ to the world’s cause.
He taught us, when washed disciples' feet, that everybody we needs to be clean of what represents our own shadows.
See our fellows as equal are the secret to abandon any power pretense. Wash the feet each other constitutes an exercise of humility and repent.
When, at the cross, He died carrying all our pains and limitations, Christ taught us the profound meaning of God’s compassion. Compassion directed to all humankind. By his death we were definitively sealed with his blood. This seal challenge us to live as he lived, according St. Paul’s writings. The discipleship is more than an honor: is a commitment to carrying the pains and limitations of each of our fellows. His arms extended at the Cross symbolize embracing the entire world. Differently that we see today in our world full of exclusions, especially of those that are not conformed according the rulers.
May God have mercy upon us and transform our hearts and minds by the Lord’s Passion and teach us to imitate his plenty self giving.
