The woman in this story has a jar of ointment, and that seems to be all. She uses her tears to wash the feet of Jesus, and her hair to wipe them away. She gives everything she has, and throws herself totally at the mercy of Jesus, who sees the openness and humility of the gesture and responds with love. Her sins were forgiven.

Lord Jesus, you are the source and lover of life.

Reawaken in us respect for every human life.

Help us to see in each child the marvellous

work of our Creator.

Open our hearts to welcome every child as a

unique and wonderful gift. Guide the work of doctors, nurses and midwives.

May the life of a mother and her baby in the

womb be equally cherished and respected.

Help those who make our laws to uphold the

uniqueness and sacredness of every human life,

from the first moment of conception to natural

death. Give us wisdom and generosity to build a

society that cares for all. Together with Mary, your Mother, in whose womb you took on our human nature, help us to choose life in every decision we take. We ask this in the joyful hope of eternal life with you, and in the communion of the

Blessed Trinity. Amen.

Our Lady of Knock, pray for us.

All the Saints of Ireland, pray for us
