Women of the Passion (one)

Anointed.

You risked it all in a moment of emotion charged with an energy that heightened the senses as perfumed hands, feet, and hair, mingled for a time.  Physical touch, in kindness, sorrow and love. Knowing somehow another chance would not come.

 

Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

John 12:3

 

’Women of the Passion’ is a series of ten short reflections on the interactions of the women with the story of the passion in the Bible.  Beginning with the annointing.  The image is an original art work of pastel on paper by Chloe.
