My blogging colleague Connecticut Catholic Corner has done excellent work with this, compiling many sources including this from Fifth Column. She even posted a letter from the Vatican that confirms that Holy Thursday feet-washing is reserved for men only. I will post it below. I will also post an "oldie-but-goodie" from the Vortex on this matter.
Julie's post asks a good question: "Is Pope Francis a Bad Example to Catholics?" It's a fair question. Unfortunately with respect to Holy Thursday rubrics, the answer is an unequivocal "YES!" I think I just saw a good portion of my parish (St John Neumann in Gaithersburg) get blind-sided, snookered and hog-tied big-time by his poor example.
