...present here. I absolutely fell in love with this picture. I love the humility, grace and admiration portrayed in this image. From Truth & Charity:
On Holy Thursday, I watched our bishop wash the feet of twelve individuals, just as Jesus washed the feet of his disciples on the night he was betrayed. Regardless of status or stature, a person washing the feet of another looks humbled. The shoulders are hunched, the back is bent, and the person doing the washing is on their knees on the bare ground, a position of complete humility.Read the whole thing here. May God bless this wonderful couple.
It is springtime, and weddings are aplenty. One of the traditions performed at many weddings is the garter toss. I find it to be utterly revolting tradition which involves removing an undergarment from the bride and tossing it to a pack of lustful bachelors only to end up hanging on a rear-view mirror as a trophy of degradation.
One such event happened at the wedding of a couple I knew in college. Matt and Julie married last week, and when the time came for the garter to be removed, Matt did something unexpected. As Julie sat in her chair, Matt approached her with a water basin and a towel. With perfect tenderness, he humbled himself and made a beautiful gesture of his service to her.
