Prayer of the Day

Holy Week

April 10th, 2017

“Jesus said; ‘Leave her alone.  She bought it so that she might keep it for the day of my burial.  You always have the poor with you,  but you do not always have me.'” (John 12 : 7)

Mary’s anointing becomes one of preparation of the body for burial after death.   All things are being readied for the final hour.  Inspired by the Holy Spirit,  Mary pours out what is within her,  her spirit,  soul, her entire being.  It is a generous gesture of great spiritual beauty and love.
