As we enter into the Triduum, I admittedly have been struggling the past few days. I can’t even really explain it, but likely a combination of many factors – every day stress topped with a lack of social interaction, missing my friends and other family members, not being able to attend Mass or receive the Eucharist, being super vigilant to prevent disease that just a trip to the grocery store or “essential needs” causes extreme anxiety. Yesterday, a friend suggested I was walking with Jesus through His Passion. Perhaps that as well. My parents and I tuned into my previous parish for Mass tonight. I always love listening to the priest there. He talked about how Holy Thursday is about humble service. That is a concept I understand all too well and work towards every day. But, the priest brought out another point. The God of the Universe came to the Earth He created in order to serve US. The priest talked about how Peter didn’t want Jesus to wash his feet. Jesus responded that if he didn’t, Peter would not be able to enter into His Kingdom. We must humbly allow God to serve us – to fill us with the things we need to live the life He gave us. I will try to do that especially this Holy Triduum.
I Found God today in a reminder to allow God to serve me.
