You know?
The washing of disciples feet was started by Jesus.
Pope Francis went to prison and washed some prisoners feet. Some women, some men.
Traditionalist were shocked because the pope traditionally only washes the feet of 12 priests in the ceremony.

I can't remember our parish priests ever differentiating between man and woman getting their feet washed in this ceremony.

I'm glad we have a Pope of the people.

John 13:1-15

Before the feast of Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come
to pass from this world to the Father.
He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end.
The devil had already induced Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, to hand him over.
So, during supper,
fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power
and that he had come from God and was returning to God,
he rose from supper and took off his outer garments.
He took a towel and tied it around his waist.
Then he poured water into a basin
and began to wash the disciples’ feet
and dry them with the towel around his waist.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him,
“Master, are you going to wash my feet?”
Jesus answered and said to him,
“What I am doing, you do not understand now,
but you will understand later.”
Peter said to him,“You will never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered him,
“Unless I wash you, you will have no inheritance with me.”
Simon Peter said to him,
“Master, then not only my feet, but my hands and head as well.”
Jesus said to him,
“Whoever has bathed has no need except to have his feet washed,
for he is clean all over;
so you are clean, but not all.”
For he knew who would betray him;
for this reason, he said,“Not all of you are clean.”

So when he had washed their feet
and put his garments back on and reclined at table again,
he said to them,“Do you realize what I have done for you?
You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am.
If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet,
you ought to wash one another’s feet.
I have given you a model to follow,
so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”

Don't feel denied, old buddy.
There were men's feet.
The Pope performed the ceremony with some men. Summa them with tattoos and most of them hairy.
If you ask me, it's a good thing Poppa's attendants had a bunch of water for washing.

Not my thing...I couldn't even be a shoe salesman.

'Cept maybe at a Victoria's Secret store.

"If madam could lift her leg higher and wiggle, perhaps I could squeeze the shoe on."

Heh...heh... ;)

It is a loving thing to do, and it shows humility.
Love and humility are good qualities in a Pope.

No, I've never seen a Pope wash and kiss anybody's feet.....I've never seen a Pope except on TV.
But I have seen a priest wash and kiss peoples feet at Holy Thursday Mass.
This Thursday, as a matter of fact.
