Today is remembrance of a group of Jesus’ followers who ate their last meal with the Lord of heaven, who was both God and human. He stooped to wash their feet as an example of how the disciples of Christ were to treat each other.
He who was the Bread of heaven served the first communion meal. He would forever nourish his people in their union with him in his resurrection. But his followers did not know this; they were to fall asleep in the midst of his agonizing prayers. They would desert him when he was arrested. One betrayed him, and one denied him.
