The cost of Jesus' obedience to the Father is quickly becoming known at this point. In his life, he lived as the Suffering Servant of whom Isaiah speaks in today's first reading. He has been a covenant to all of us, has cured the sick, opened the eyes of the blind, and even raised the dead. Now he will embrace our own death, as Mary prophesies today with the anointing of his feet. The journey to his death has begun. His body is prepared. Come, in these holy days, and keep vigil with him.
