Holy Wednesday

Matthew 26:6-16

6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, 7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat. 8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? 9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her. 14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

 

THE HARLOT CAME TO YOU, LOVER OF MANKIND,

POURING MYRRH AND TEARS ON YOUR FEET.

AT YOUR COMMAND SHE WAS DELIVERED FROM THE STENCH OF HER EVIL DEEDS,

BUT YOUR GRACELESS DISCIPLE, THOUGH BREATHING YOUR GRACE,

REJECTED IT AND WALLOWED IN FILTH,

SELLING YOU IN HIS LOVE OF MONEY.

GLORY, O CHRIST, TO YOUR COMPASSION!
