Monday of Holy Week, 2020

In today’s reading from the Gospel of John, Mary uses costly oil to anoint the feet of Jesus, then dries them with her hair. “Jesus sees where His mission is leading,” says Fr. Jerry in his homily, “He seeks comfort in the company of His friends.” In Jesus’ time, Father explains, the washing of feet would have been performed by a servant of the household. “Jesus is obviously touched by this act of love and care,” said Father. Hear the lesson in Father’s reading and homily below. Thank you for watching, and we’re glad you are able to join us online.
