St. Augustine Washing the Feet of Christ by Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo

The theme symbolizes the readiness of St. Augustine Serve Christ. Its meaning is set forth in the Gospel. In the evening of that day, Jesus Christ, knowing that He would be betrayed that night, came with His twelve apostles to the prepared upper room. Then, he took off his outer clothing, girded himself with a towel, poured water into the washbasin, and began to wash the students’ feet and wipe it with a towel with which he was girded.

Having washed the feet of the disciples, Jesus Christ put on His clothes and said to them: “Do you know what I have done to you? Behold, you call Me Master and

Lord and call me right. So if I, Lord and Teacher, washed your feet, then you must wash each other’s feet, for I have given you an example, that you also do what I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you: a servant is not greater than his lord, and a messenger who sent him no more. If you know this, blessed when you play. “
