Pope washes prisoner’s feet
Wow. Contrary to popular belief, I am not Catholic. Although I do have a great respect for Mother Teresa and members of the Catholic faith. I am what the Irish refer to as a republican. I believe in a free republic and the freedom of religion.
Catholics aren’t the only ones that celebrate Maundy Thursday. Yet today’s news of the new Pope breaking with tradition and washing the feet of a female Muslim prisoner warms the heart. Humility isn’t something we see in leadership these days. It gives us something to think about.
