Year in Faith: Mary Magdalene’s name is
mentioned at the end of the Gospel. She is incorrectly thought to have been a prostitute. Mary is often referred to as a disciple and has a significant role in the Gospel according to John as a witness
to the Risen Christ. (Sourcebook 2013) Reflection: Would you consider yourself a disciple of Christ?Liturgy Notes
A penitent woman is washing Jesus’
feet at the house of the Pharisee. Jesus relates a parable to explain that she
is showing and experiencing deep gratitude for her reconciliation with the Lord. (Sourcebook 2013) Reflection: How do you
express your gratitude?
