Monday Holy Week 2013 Mary Anoints Feet of Jesus

 Scripture readings for today's Mass are here

 Reflections from 2012 are here.

"Mary took a litre of costly perfumed oil
made from genuine aromatic nard
and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair."

Article on the practice of anointing with oil from here.

Computers can't emanate fragrance along with words- a pity as it would be nice if they could for today.

The first Monday of Holy Week.

I read this beautiful scriptures and then I read that some churches are quibbling over whether women along with men can have their feet washed on Maundy Thursday,
 and I wonder does Jesus weep ?
