Mass of Our Lord’s Supper (Holy Thursday)

March 25, 2016

WHAT YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND

Simon Peter said to Jesus, “Master, are you going to wash my feet?” And Jesus answered, “What I am doing, you do not understand now, but you will understand later.”

How often Jesus says this to his disciples (and thus to us). . . .

It makes us nervous does it not? Being asked to do what we do not understand? The problem is that we no longer accept what we do not know like we used to, and our children even less so. I am convinced it is one of the unexamined consequences of Google and the internet. What we do not know, we do not have to tolerate for long – as the answers are just a few keywords away. But the problem with this, among many, is that our search is based on keywords that we make up and control. Thus, the fruit of our search is rather. . . predetermined . . . by our own comfort zone.
