2014 Lenten Devotional - Saturday, March 22
Posted on March 22, 2014 by Sister Carol Perry

“For you always have the poor with you, and you can show kindness to them whenever you wish; but you will not always have me.” - Mark 14:7

Jesus is responding, with some severity, to a critic of the woman who anointed His feet with her priceless perfume. He is praising her gesture of love, not measuring its worth in monetary terms. Can you hear the longing in His voice?

Let us be attentive to Jesus today. He asks only some of our time in prayer. Is that too much to request?
