Maundy Thursday

Christ, whose feet were caressed
with perfume and a woman's hair;
you humbly took basin and towel
and washed the feet of your friends.
Wash us also in your tenderness
as we touch one another:
that, embracing your service freely,
we may accept no other bondage
in your name, Amen.


A collect for Maundy Thursday by Janet Morley
(from All Desires Known: Inclusive Prayers for Worship and Meditation,
