Gospel and// LK 7:36-50 A certain Pharisee invited Jesus to dine with him,and he entered the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table.Now there was a sinful woman in the citywho learned that he was at table in the house of the Pharisee.Bringing an alabaster flask of ointment,she stood behind him at his feet weepingand began to bathe his feet with her tears.Then she wiped them with her hair,kissed them, and anointed them with the ointment.When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this he said to himself, If this man were a prophet,he would know who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him,that she is a sinner.”Jesus said to him in reply, Simon, I have something to say to you.” Tell me, teacher,” he said. Two people were in debt to a certain creditorone owed five hundred days’ wages and the other owed fifty.Since they were unable to repay the debt, he forgave it for both.Which of them will love him more?”Simon said in reply, The one, I suppose, whose larger debt was forgiven.”He said to him, You have judged rightly.”Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, Do you see this woman?When I entered your house, you did not give me water for my feet,but she has bathed them with her tearsand wiped them with her hair.You did not give me a kiss,but she has not ceased kissing my feet since the time I entered.You did not anoint my head with oil,but she anointed my feet with ointment.So I tell you, her many sins have been forgivenhence, she has shown great love.But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.”He said to her, Your sins are forgiven.”The others at table said to themselves, Who is this who even forgives sins?”But he said to the woman, Your faith has saved you go in peace.”
