Today is Monday in Holy Week. Each year on this day we remember the woman who anointed Jesus with costly perfume. Jesus said that she was doing this for his burial.
Let us each imagine what it would be like to pour such devotion on Jesus.
Let us imagine what it would be like for the fragrance of the anointing to fill the room in which we find ourselves right now.
Let us imagine what it would be like to hear Jesus' words of affirmation. "Leave her alone. She has done what she could."
