'But to serve'

This photo of Pope Francis washing and kissing the feet of young, tattooed detainees at a prison struck me deeply. I know that traditionalists were not pleased that the pope broke with some tradition in celebrating this Holy Thursday Mass, but I can't help thinking that this remarkable act of love and humility might just be one ray of light penetrating the sad, dark world these youth may live in, day in and day out. I'm sure they went to bed tonight with their souls a little more at peace than last night. 

And perhaps that's where conversion starts. You know, love.
