Fear vs Love

Holy Thursday

The beginning of the Paschal Triduum

Peter may probably fall in this last category.  He will not allow Jesus to wash his feet.  It is not solely because he has high respect for the Lord and is therefore jealous of the Lord’s dignity.  It is because he realized what power and authority will look like in the new dispensation that Jesus will bring.

It is service and not perks and privileges. And so there is a war going
