Rejoice Catholics of the Diocese of Venice, Bishop Frank Dewane washed the feet of some women on Holy Thursday!
According to a Sarasota Herald Tribune article, Bishop Dewane sent a letter to his priests reminding them of the rule that women's feet were not to be washed on Holy Thursday. Some pastors followed the directive, some did not. Bishop Dewane did not follow his own directive. What happenened?
Does this represent a change of heart by Bishop Dewane?
Let's hope so.
