Sacred Fire by  Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I., is one of my favorite books.   In chapter 4 he makes the point that we, like Jesus, have an inner garment and that the garment is “imprinted with the dark memory, the brand of love and truth, the inchoate knowledge that, like Jesus, we too have come from God, are returning to God, and therefore are capable of doing anything, including loving and washing the feet of someone very different from ourselves.  Our inner garment is the image and likeness of God inside us, and we when we are in touch with this, we can find the strength to wash one another’s feet across any divide.”

Let’s just think about that for a bit and decide how we can do that in our daily lives.
