I was appalled to read Mr. Edward Peters' (a canon lawyer who is an adviser to the Holy See) comment regarding Pope Francis's washing the feet of women during the Holy Thursday Mass.
Mr. Peters' comment of "What he does do, I fear, is set a questionable example." when speaking of the Pope's breaking with the tradition of excluding women as prescribed by current liturgical rules.
I believe that Jesus was accused of the same "questionable example" when He stopped men from stoning a woman accused of prostitution, when He ate with tax collectors, when He told Mary and Martha that they were welcome to join the men to listen to His teaching and when He preformed miracles on the Sabbath.
Shame on you, Mr. Peters, and may God bless you, Pope Francis, for following the "questionable example" of our Lord Jesus Christ.
