In a recent faith formation class, a Sister was telling the children about the events of Holy Week. She explained how Judas betrayed Our Lord on Wednesday and then spoke about Holy Thursday and the Last Supper. Trying to engage the children, she had them imagine what it was like for Jesus to wash the Apostles feet. The Apostles walked everywhere, the roads were dirt and rock, and they wore sandals. Their feet were probably very dirty and Jesus - who is God - washed their feet like a servant. When this Sister asked the class what it would have been like for Jesus to wash Judas' feet, even though He knew Judas had betrayed Him, one little boy raised his hand. He said, "Well, I think that Judas' feet were not as dirty as the other Apostles because he was not walking with Jesus."
