A Charitable Defilement

Almighty Jesus, my sweet Savior Christ,

which wouldst vouchsafe thine own almighty hands

to wash the feet of thy twelve apostles,

not only of the good, but of the very traitor too,

vouchsafe, Good Lord, of thine excellent goodness,

in such wise to wash the foul feet of my affections,

that I never have such pride enter into mine heart

as to disdain, either in friend or foe,

with meekness and charity, for the love of thee,

to defile my hands with washing of their feet.

St. Thomas More
