Today's Gospel reading recounted Mary's anointing of Jesus at Bethany, where Judas Iscariot scolded her for wasting precious oil on Jesus rather than giving proceeds to the poor.
The large crowd of the Jews found out that he was there and came, not only because of him, but also to see Lazaras, whom he had raised from the dead. And the chief priests plotted to kill Lazarus too, because many of the Jews were turning away and believing in Jesus because of him. John 12:9-11
I received a great gift in my email box this morning from my favorite publication.
Magnificat has published the Holy Week volume online, for free. The month of April is also free!
This is an amazing companion for prayer and spiritual reading. If you've never read Magnificat, this is your chance to get a peek for free! There are several pages of introductory essays & such at the beginning of each issue, followed by morning, day (or Mass) and evening prayers for each day. The pages were a little slow to to load, but well worth the wait, I promise.
