Best foot forward

A LATE directive from the Vatican today has indicated that European Health and Safety directives will require some changes at the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper tonight.

The guidelines will apply to The Washing of the Feet, a traditional component of the Holy Thursday celebration in many Christian Churches, including the Armenian, Ethiopian, Eastern Orthodox, Brethren, Mennonite Faiths in addition to the Catholic Churches.

To take part in this part of the service parishioners’ feet will have to pass Procerus Fibula regulations issued by the Vatican department of measures.

These changes will only apply when Holy Thursday falls on the first day of the fourth month.
