James Tissot “The Ointment of the Magdalene”

Reflection on Art

James Tissot captures the idea of Lesson 4 perfectly in “The Ointment of the Magdalene.” Look at the reaction on everyone’s faces, and the hand of Jesus, outstretched in blessing. Look at the woman’s posture. Why hold anything back? Let’s love our Lord like that.

    When my Uncle Johnny was unable to walk, I put throw pillows under each of his arms in order to lift him up without hurting him. I was able to get him in and out of bed and put him in his easy chair, etc. At times during the course of the day, he would ask me to change his position and those throw pillows were a godsend. I would have put the breath of life in him if I could have; he was there for me all of my life and I would have battled all the Goliaths in the world for him, but there are times when the good Lord knows best and we must always adhere to His Divine Will, “Jesus, I trust in You!”

    Wow, Karenlee. You and your Uncle Johnny were blessed to have each other, and you truly “loved him lavishly,” just as today’s show describes. Thank you for sharing this story with us, and so beautifully told.
