Today is Holy Thursday, the first day of the Easter Triduum. This is when the traditional washing of the feet happens during mass; tonight my grandfather was there and was one of the volunteers to get their feet washed. It truly is a beautiful sight to see…..is there any other religion in which the priests kneel down to do something like this for the laity? When mass is over we headed out the doors and sung the exit song, which I can’t remember the name of right now. We proceeded to the adoration chapel with the scent of incense surrounding us, silently waiting for everyone else to enter behind us. Adoration is until midnight tonight for anyone who wants to stay that long. We stayed for a few minutes but then left to go meet my grandparents outside. I certainly could have stayed longer than we did though….oh well.
We went out to eat with grandma and grandpa after mass and now my parents and I are home, watching Jesus of Nazareth.
