carried to the table

Thursday, April 5, 2012

This morning, I think of Jesus sharing that final supper table with his disciples…just as I shared the remembrance of that event last Sunday with my own community of fellow disciples. All of us alone – unworthy, broken, yet still, through the sacrifice of our Savior, all seated at the table together. He carries us, yes, but in the most beautiful, mysterious way, we also carry each other.

“To wash the feet of a brother or sister in Christ, to allow someone to wash our feet, is a sign that together we want to follow Jesus, to take the downward path, to find Jesus’ presence in the poor and the weak. Is it not a sign that we yearn to be men and women of forgiveness, to be healed and cleansed and to heal and cleanse others and thus to live more fully in communion with Jesus?”
- Jean Vanier quoted in Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
