Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: For Palm Sunday, this reflection describes on the meaning of “Passion Sunday” using Mark 14:1–15:47. Palm Sunday begins a week of focusing on the Passion of the Cross: the sufferings and death that Jesus endured because of his tremendous love for us. But first we take a look at the passion of the woman who anointed Jesus with perfume. For her perfume to be a “costly” gift for Jesus, it must have been fermenting for a long time. Our most precious possessions are those that have been important to us for many years. Giving them to others feels like a very huge sacrifice.
