Meditation on Today's Gospel:
Why did Pharisees criticize Jesus' sympathetic action of a woman of ill repute? They shunned the company of public sinners and in so responsibility they neglected to give them the help they needed to find curing and completeness. The woman's action was aggravated by one thing, and one thing only, namely, her love for Jesus and her thankfulness for forgiveness. She did something; however, a Jewish woman would never do in public. She loosed her hair and anoints Jesus with her tears. It was usual for a woman on her wedding day to bind her hair. For a married woman to loosen her hair in public was a sign of grave immodesty. This woman was oblivious to all around her, except for Jesus. She also did something which only love can do. She took the most precious thing she had and spent it all on Jesus. Her love was not intended but profligate. In a spirit of humbleness and heart-felt repentance, she plentifully served the one who show her the mercy and kindness of God. Jesus, in his usual fashion, never lost the chance to draw a lesson from such an incident.
