Yes he spoke to the Samaritan woman...but did not wash her feet.

At the last supper Jesus washing of “the Disciples” feet, in content with the passage....was emphasize they were to serve one another..(as believers), rather then squabble over who was more significant.

I do think the Pope went too far by kissing the feet as he did...were the individuals believers? Because we can't ignore the fact Jesus washed “the Disciples” feet....not unbelievers...and this to make a bold statement concerning they were to serve one another.

However, this is the first Pope I've found quite interesting... and perhaps he will make a difference within the Catholic faith as he certainly seems to be taking the church to a place where they remember what the family of believers is about. Time will tell....no doubt opposition will follow him.

were the individuals believers?

A couple were believers in Allah (Muslim definition; not Mideast Christian), we've been told.

But, alas, one has to pick one's battles, and this episode is 0.000001 percent as troubling to me as the existence of the NO itself, somewhat like a pimple on a huge skin tumor -- who cares?
