Today we hear about Jesus spending time with his very good friends just a few days before He goes to the Cross for us. Mary, Martha and Lazarus—who was just raised from the dead!—throw a party for Jesus. Mary takes the opportunity to anoint the feet of Jesus with very expensive spikenard oil. She doesn’t count the cost—something that Judas readily objects to. Nothing is too much for Jesus. That is Mary’s attitude and she is commended for it. It reminds me about Palm Sunday—laying down your cloaks before Jesus, humbling yourself. Lord may we have this attitude this Holy Week.
