Holy Week 2008: Holy Monday Reflections

I woke up early at 9 AM..
This was the agreed time with my parents
For me to be awoken..
I was assigned to attend our little sari-sari store..
while they will accompany our little bro
to the doctor for a checkup
he was feeling so bad, very sick..

This was what i asked from GOD last sunday
when my other brother attended mass
and of course, he was always with us,…
as of the moment, my little brother is feeling good..

but what is Holy Monday? What is the unforgettable incident in relate to life of Jesus Christ?

in this gospel of john 12:1-11, we will do our reflections..

Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him. 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. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (the one who was about to betray him), said, “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and the money given to the poor?” (He said this not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it.) Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She bought it so that she might keep it for the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.” When the great crowd of the Jews learned that he was there, they came not only because of Jesus but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests planned to put Lazarus to death as well, since it was on account of him that many of the Jews were deserting and were believing in Jesus.
