Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Jesus washes his disciples' feet, telling Peter that he does not need to wash his body for he is already clean; but not Pilate, for he would betray him. The washing of which he speaks is not an ordinary washing. Peter is clean for he has been baptized, as have we. So then, the foot washing provides comfort for feet wearied from walking, even as the Sacrament of the Altar gives us balm for our weary souls along the way. It is Christ's Body and Blood, and therefore we may take comfort in receiving that by which he made atonement. Sermon for Maundy Thursday. The video is here.
