The anointing of Jesus at Bethany
Mary (Lazarus’s sister) shows her love for Jesus  (John 12)

“Jesus acted in a very sacrificial way;  and Mary responds sacrificially.  Something extravagant seems to be the only apt human response to make.
She is responding in the best way she knows how  to the fact that Jesus has done something which is (in the literal meaning of the word) incredible.”
