A Maundy Thursday Collect

Lord Jesus, our teacher who bears authority over us, your servants, move our hearts to love and serve one another, and let not our pride dissuade us, that we would ever be willing to strip away station and status and give of ourselves as you showed us to do, through you who was exalted high above all creation to sit at the right hand of the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen.

‘You call me Teacher and Lord–and you are right, for that is what I am. So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.’ – John 13:13-14
