quote Opus enim bonum operata in me

That woman in the house of Simon the leper in Bethany, anointing the Master’s head with precious ointment, reminds us of the duty to be generous in the worship of God.

All the richness, majesty, and beauty possible would still seem too little for me.

And against those who attack the richness of sacred vessels, of vestments and altars, we hear the praise given by Jesus: “opus enim bonum operata in me”—”She has done me a good turn.”

The Way, #527, St. Josemaría Escrivá (1902-1975)
