Jn 13:16-20

Today’s Gospel returns to the evening of the Passover. Jesus emphasizes two points. One is that in the same way he humbled himself by washing the feet of his disciples, so they must do for others. And, by receiving him, they receive the Father for he and the Father are one. Jesus tells his disciples this knowing God’s plan is about to unfold.

You washed feet like a servant, and you died like a criminal. Though it seems your humility left you powerless, in fact, it made you powerful.
