`Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights,’ says the Lord; `I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.’
I am going to talk to you today, about Mary Magdalene and the anointing of Jesus.
It seems at first, to be a moving, but straight forward account.
All in all, tradition has brought us a mixture of images from which to choose. Closer scrutiny however, reveals another view. One, that I think, we should not overlook.
Jesus the anointed,
teach us to honour those who need our help,
and we shall give without condescension,
and receive with humility.
Hear this prayer for your love’s sake.
