When Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house,
behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner;
Mary called Magdalen.

She brought an alabaster box of ointment,
and stood behind him, weeping.
And began to wash his feet with tears,
and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
And kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

Jesus turned to the woman and said:
“Thy sins are forgiven, thy faith hath saved thee.
Go thy way in peace”.
