Holy Thursday Coloring Activity
Holy Thursday



On Thursday, we have the readings for  Holy Thursday.  The Gospel reading (Jn 13:1-151) tells the story of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.  Jesus and His friends had gathered together to eat a special meal for the feast of Passover.  After the meal, Jesus got up from the table and began to wash the feet of the disciples.  Simon Peter and Jesus' other friends felt very uncomfortable about this, thinking that they should be instead serving Jesus in this way.  But Jesus told Simon Peter, "Unless I wash you, you will have no inheritance with me."  Peter wanted so much to be with Jesus and to have salvation with God that he allowed Jesus to wash his feet.  Once He had finished, Jesus told His disciples, "Do you realize what I have done for you?  You call me 'teacher' and 'master,' and rightly so, for indeed I am.  If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another's feet.  I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do."  

Jesus called His disciples to love and to serve one another.  In the same way, Jesus calls each of us to do this same thing!  Jesus wants us to be models of His love by helping and caring for one another.  On Holy Thursday, try to attend Mass with your family.  You will probably see the Priest from your church washing the feet of some of the men, who represent the disciples.  While you are at Mass and while you are coloring, think about ways that you can "wash the feet" of the special people in your life. 

Take some quiet time to pray to God as you color. To color the pictures, click on the small image to enlarge and use your "back" button to return here.
