Apr 14 – Homily – Fr Benedict: The Perfect Righteousness of Jesus

Monday, April 14th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140414 ( 07:44 min) Play Mary Magdalene used perfumed oil to anoint the head and feet Jesus. The fragrance of the oil represents faith. The act of anointing Christ’s head and feet represents the acknowledgment of the Perfect Righteousness of Jesus. Conversely the objection of Judas is a negation of the perfect righteousness of Christ and an objection to Christ’s divine mercy.
