"As I have done, so you must do."

05-01-2016Fr. Michael Straley


We remember that at the Last Supper, Jesus washed the feet of his apostles...then he said, "As I have done, so you must do." Soon after that he led them to the Garden of Gethsemane where he prayed, "Take this cup away, Father, but not as I will but your will be done." He then went through suffering to his death and then his resurrection.

Many of us want resurrection without suffering, and especially without submitting to the will of God. At the Last Supper Jesus also said that no servant is greater than his master; yet many believe that they can ignore the teachings of the "master", God, because they know better.
