Pope Francis - Charity, Humility, Service

Archbishop Bergoglio before becoming Pope Francis
It has just been announced that Pope Francis, instead of celebrating the start of the Triduum, the Mass of the Lord's Supper (Holy Thursday), at St. Peter's Basilica, will continue a practice he began as bishop in Buenos Aires and celebrate it at a prison.  In this case, the pope will wash the feet of twelve of the inmates at Casal del Marmo, a juvenile prison in Rome.  

I think his tweet (from Tuesday  gives us the reason for this.  
"True power is service. The Pope must serve all people, especially the poor, the weak, the vulnerable."
Pope Francis, I believe, is taking the virtue of humility, seen so clearly in his predecessors, John Paul, who let the world watch the young, vibrant, athlete slowly succumb to Parkinson's disease, and Benedict, who acknowledged to the world that he wasn't strong enough, to a new height.  This humility, as all virtues must be, is motivated by love, by charity.  Obviously, the perfect example of humility is Our Lord, who became one of his creation, and why did Jesus do this?  Love.  Pray for Pope Francis that he can continue to show the world what it means to be a disciple of Christ, through his example.  I can't help but notice that Pope Francis is taking St. Francis's words "Preach the gospel at all times - If necessary, use words" to heart.  As Christians, we must always be conscious of the example we are giving to others.  Are we acting like Christ?  The slogan "What would Jesus Do?" is kind of laughed at, but that is exactly how we need to live - like Our Lord.  Keep up the good Lent!
