Monday of Holy WeekJohn 12:1-11
Today’s gospel reading tells of Jesus at the home of Martha and Mary and Lazarus. The reading takes place after the raising of Lazarus from the dead. Mary annoints the feet of Our Lord with genuine aromatic nard. This is a foreshadowing of His burial annointing.
In this gospel reading we hear of the plots of the chief priests to kill the Lord.
All of this begins to prepare our minds for the coming Passion.
Have mercy on us, Oh Lord.
