The Gentile society of Luke’s time had little regard for the dignity of women. Luke, in addressing himself to these hearers, is at pains to stress
the role women play in Jesus’ ministry and in the
life of the Church. In today’s passage Jesus is
depicted as violating certain taboos in order to
welcome a repentant woman.
During the meal given for Jesus by Simon the
Pharisee, the woman enters unexpectedly. Rabbinic custom frowned upon any close contact between men and women outside the home. In addition, this woman is a public sinner. Ready to renounce her way of like, she now publicly puts her
faith in this man who has come for people like
herself. Her attitude stands in stark contrast to
the calculated reserve of the devout Simon. Without knowing it, she is worthy of pardon. If it is
true that people become what they are seen to be,
we are transformed by Christ’s look of love. In
him death is not before us but behind us.
In the New Testament the Pharisees and the
Sadducees are described as the two main Jewish
sects who opposed Jesus’ teaching. The Pharisees’ refusal to accept Jesus as the Messiah was
one of the root causes of the long, sad, and often
violent history between Christians and Jews, persisting even down to our own day. The Sadducees,
an elite priestly caste, disappeared after the Romans destroyed the temple in Jerusalem in A.D.
70. The Pharisees continued on, probably because
they had more of the “common touch.” They interpreted the scriptures for people, believed in an
afterlife, and took Judaism from Temple worship
to assemblies in synagogues, where they preached
and taught from the law and the prophets. It is
from the Pharisees that modern Judaism developed. While the Gospels frequently tell how
Pharisees tried to trap Jesus with argument and
appeals to the law, in today’s Gospel Luke tells us
about a Pharisee who invites Jesus to his house
for a meal. An unnamed woman comes in, washes
Jesus’ feet with her tears, dries them with her unbound hair and anoints him with oil. Because
only prostitutes went about with unbound hair,
Jesus’ Pharisee friend immediately condemns her
as a sinner. Jesus reminds him that, as host, he
has not provided his guest with the ordinary gestures of hospitality— washing and anointing before a meal—but this unnamed woman has supplied them.
Louder than words….
In ancient times sinfulness was thought to cause illness, so
the woman may have been a prostitute, or perhaps she was
mentally ill or simply a person who was proud, a constant
fault-finder, a harsh critic of others. Whatever her actual
condition, Jesus is aware—as the Pharisee is not—that she
knows her own brokenness and has complete faith in God to
make her whole.

El Nuevo Testamento describe a los fariseos y saduceos
como las dos sectas principales del judaísmo que se oponen
a las enseñanzas de Jesús. La actitud denegatoria de los
fariseos para aceptar a Jesús como el Mesías ha sido una
de las causas originarias de la larga y triste historia, y a
veces hasta de violencia, entre cristianos y judíos, lo cual
ha persistido aun hasta la actualidad. Los saduceos pertenecían a una casta elitista de sacerdotes, que desapareció
después que los romanos destruyeron el templo de Jerusalén en el 70 D.C. Los fariseos continuaron debido
probablemente a que tenían más contacto con el pueblo.
Les interpretaban las Escrituras, creían en la resurrección
y sacaron al judaísmo del templo hasta las sinagogas,
donde predicaban y enseñaban a la asamblea sobre la ley y
los profetas. El judaísmo moderno ha devenido de los fariseos. Mientras que los evangelios nos cuentan frecuentemente cómo los fariseos trataban de tenderle trampas a
Jesús con sus argumentos y recursos a la ley, en el evangelio de hoy Lucas nos hace un relato sobre el fariseo que
invitó a Jesús a comer en su casa. Una mujer, cuyo nombre
desconocemos, viene a lavarle los pies a Jesús con sus
lágrimas, los enjugó con su cabellera y después los ungió
con perfume. Debido a que sólo las prostitutas de la época
andaban con el pelo suelto, este fariseo amigo de Jesús inmediatamente condena a la mujer como a una pecadora.
Jesús le recuerda que él como anfitrión no ha tenido un gesto de hospitalidad para con su invitado—lavado y unción
antes de una comida—pero que esta mujer sí lo ha hecho.
Tal vez la mujer era una prostituta o sufría una enfermedad
mental. En la antigüedad se creía que el pecado causaba la
enfermedad. Quizás era una persona orgu-llosa que siempre encontraba culpa y criticaba a los demás. Pero,
cualquiera que haya sido su condición, Jesús se da
cuenta—mientras que el fariseo no se la da—de que esta
mujer admite su propio quebranto y tiene completa fe en
que Dios puede sanarla.

Pope Francis has proclaimed two new saints: a Lutheran
convert who hid Jews during World War II and the Polish
founder of the first men’s religious order dedicated to the
Immaculate Conception.
Francis called Swedish-born Elizabeth Hesselblad and
Stanislaus Papczynski “exemplary witnesses to this mystery
of resurrection” during the canonization Mass on Sunday
in St. Peter’s Square.
Hesselblad saved the lives of several Jewish families by
hiding them in the Roman convent where she was superior.
She is Sweden’s second saint in 625 years, following Saint
Bridget, who was canonized in 1391.
Stanislaus of Jesus and Mary, as he is known, supported
hospitals and shelters for the poor in the 17th Century. His
crowning achievement was founding the order of Marian
Fathers, which preached the cult of Holy Mary.
