Gospel Reflection: Luke 7: 36-50

Here’s a reflection on Luke 7: 36-50, where Jesus is anointed by a sinful woman.  It was written by Ken Rookes.

One who loves much
(inspired by Luke 7: 36-50)

The righteous ones,
offended by her
very presence;
call her sinner,
whore, temptress,
seducer,
promiscuous,
unmarried mother,
unemployed,
dole bludger,
drunkard,
irresponsible,
druggie.
Unoffended
by her intimate
caress;
Jesus calls her
woman,
friend,
forgiven,
one who
loves much.
And God smiles.
