Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 15, 2019 Holy Monday
Gospel: John 12:1-11
The measure of love is to love without measure - St. Francis de Sales
As we enter into the Holy Week, we are invited to reflect on our motivation and intentions in our own Lenten journey. The gospel today speaks of how Mary anointed Jesus’ feet with expensive oil. Judas questioned Mary’s gesture. In our life, we can be influenced with our selfish intentions when loving and serving Jesus through our own ways. We might measure the way we serve and express our love towards Jesus and to other people. Jesus invites us to love without measure and to serve him without counting the cost.
May Mary’s act of devotion and love to Jesus be our inspiration to follow Him purely. Amen.
