In today’s Second Reading, the author of the Second Letter to Timothy speaks in the following terms: ‘As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my death is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful’. Many people experience their lives as ‘poured out’, often against their will, owing to a range of different circumstances. Life has a way of taking from us, whether we like it or not. Could we ever consider offering even our very helplessness to God?
At one time Peter had wayward feet, but Andrew brought him to Jesus. And then one night Peter had some wet feet because he was walking on the water. Then he had washed feet when Jesus knelt before him and washed his feet (John 13). He had wandering feet when he denied the Lord. Here he had willing feet. "How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace" (Rom 10:15). What kind of feet do we have?
