On Feet

As Liam reminded us this morning, one small step, and one big distraction removed. Nothing yet on the big “faithful” Catholic sites. It won’t change practice in a lot of parishes.
Hopefully we can disconnect from the practice of the limit of 12, a number not mentioned in the Roman Missal. And who washes, because it was a mandatum directed to all the disciples at the Last Supper, seemingly not just the apostles.

    Just note FWIW that the new rubric Missal envisions a small group (in the Latin…), i.e., not the entire congregation, being selected to undertake the ritual symbolism of the commandment.

      The only problem with that, Liam, is that the ritual remains in the realm of play-acting. Like the rare priest who rides a donkey on the Sunday prior. Still, small steps get the pilgrimage moving.

      • Liam says:

        So….would you prefer not to bother with the ritual at all? It would be play-acting regardless of the number of people who do it, right?
