Abbot washes the feet of a woman on Holy Thursday

Archabbey of St Meinrad in America

Cathcon- there are plenty of fellow monks and male oblates whose feet he can wash- but no, unlike Jesus, he chooses a woman.

A friend on facebook reports that the churches in her neighbourhood had only just started to implement some of the rules handed down, or clarified, under Benedict. "Now it's all gone to pot again. Almost literally overnight."
