Holy Week, 2015.
In the Gospel today we are reminded of the humility of at least one Mary, who anointed the feet of Jesus with precious perfume.
On Holy Thursday, Jesus will wash the disciples’ feet with water.
It was a lowly task and Peter thought it unsuitable for Jesus:
Mary's Response To Jesus
Six days before Passover Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.
They gave a dinner for him there, and Martha served, while Lazarus was one of those reclining at table with him.
Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair;the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.
