Less clear, however, is the impact this revolution will have on entire industries, regions and societies around the world. Will it be a force for good or evil? Will it provide new opportunities for all, or will it exacerbate inequalities?

Pope: Holy Thursday foot-washing should include women

Pope to include women in foot washing riteA decree by Pope Francis, issued Thursday, expressly includes women in the traditional Holy Thursday rite of foot-washing.

The tradition of the priest washing the feet of 12 parishioners seated at the altar during Mass on the Thursday before Easter is taken from the Gospel of John, where Jesus washed the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper. The custom, known as the Mandatum, traditionally involved 12 men. The Pope's decree, contained in a letter to Prefect Cardinal Robert Sarah and published Thursday by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, specifies the recipients will no longer be "the men who have been chosen," but "those chosen from among the people of God."
