Holy Thursday is about the institution on the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Priesthood. The all male priesthood. It has always been a liturgical abuse to wash the feet of women at the Holy Thursday liturgy. It’s still a liturgical abuse. Even if a Pope does it, unless or until he changes the rubrics.

Maybe it’s a minor point. And it’s not a hill I’m willing to die on. I expressed my opinion and that’s pretty much all I’m going to say about it.

Yes Christ washed the feet of his apostles. Not women and not pagans. The Pope selected a female and a Muslim. Why?

The primary argument for an all male priesthood us that Christ only chose men as His apostles. Its the same reason men are chosen for the washing of the feet. The Pope has moved away from this tradition n a very public fashion. It is unsettling.
