Readings for Today

It is easy to identify with the two characters in today’s gospel. I find that all too often I am like Simon, who cannot see past the woman’s sinfulness. I think too often it can be the case that I have already made up a judgement about another person, and then find all the evidence I need to see in their behavior what I have already decided, whether it is there or not. But I know I need to be more like the woman, paying attention to the jar I bring, filled with my own sinfulness, and make it, as she did, a sign of God’s abundant mercy. What do you bring to the Lord? And what do you want God to do with it?
