    I always read your stuff, including comments, but this one seems a little off.  It sounds like you think the only reason this woman could be in jail is because of something related to her religion.  Perhaps that's not what you meant, but that's how it sounds.  Having said that, it is strange that she'd allow him to touch her.  

    While there is an ancient tradition in the Middle East about feet (note that people took off their shoes to smack the statue of Saddam when it was toppled and the guy who threw his shoe(s) at Bush), washing others' feet is a truly foreign thing for us.  It's supposed to be a sign of humility on the part of the washer, but in our culture, it's much more humbling for people to submit to having someone else wash our feet.  Getting twelve pairs of feet for tonight's Mass was a real challenge.  :-)
