Saturday Synaxis

(Painting: "Christ Washing Peter's Feet," by Ford Madox Brown, c.1858)

Jesus, my feet are dirty. Come and slave for me; pour your water into your basin and come and wash my feet. I am overbold, I know, in asking this, but I dread what you threatened when you said: “If I do not wash your feet, it means you have no companionship with me.” Wash my feet, then, because I do want companionship with you.
