Pope Francis Washes Feet of Migrants

The pontiff called the assault on the Belgium capital an “act of war, of destruction … by people who do not want to live in peace.”

CHR Comment: Based on Jesus’ example and teaching about humility in John 13, the popes practice foot washing as a symbolic act of humility and kindness toward others. The article describes those whose feet were washed this year, focusing on the fact that Pope Francis has included non-Christians at the foot washing events and citing his belief that Christians and adherents of other world religions worship the same God.
