“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you most solemnly, no servant is greater than his master.”
Though we are in the Easter season and perhaps remember the ‘washing of the feet’ during the liturgy of Holy Thursday, we are reminded today of Jesus’ teaching throughout the gospel of the dignity of the human person. Each of us is created in the image of God our Father. This means we have a uniqueness not shared by any other part of God’s creation. This uniqueness is our spirit which enables us to love and experience God and to be capable of making moral decisions. It is this uniqueness that makes all humans equal. In the Kingdom of God, which also includes our earthly dwelling, there is no one person, even those who hold high offices in the Church or in the State, who is above another in the eyes of God. All are loved equally.
Prayer :I will sing for ever of your love O Lord. Ps.88 :1 (89)
