Monday of Holy Week
John 12:1-11

 

Jesus was always giving, always reaching out to minister to the needs of others. He fed the hungry; he gave sight to the blind, voice to the mute, legs to the crippled, health to the lepers. Jesus also teaches us how to receive, a lesson that is more difficult to learn than giving. He allows Mary to anoint his feet. Mary’s need to express her love was greater than his embarrassment.
