“Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair.” John 12:3
Mary’s radical act of love teaches me that giving with love not performed out of mere sense of duty or out of obligation, can fill peoples’ lives and the air with that kind of fragrance that comes from love. Mary gave to Jesus the best she had. Jesus gave his life for us. I wonder how the world will be if we always give the best to our neighbor and share the kind of fragrance that comes from radical love.
May the perfume of love give fragrance to our lives and our neighbors’ lives.
