Myrrh Bearing Women Sunday,

TODAY'S GOSPEL is dedicated to the Ointment-Bearing Women who came to the grave of Jesus to anoint His body. The icon depicts the scene at the door of the tomb and the angel informing them of the Risen Lord.

The reverence for the body suggested by the Ointment-Bearing Women is something we should be reminded of on occasion. The bible teaches us that the human body has a holy purpose. It is more than just a physical entity. It is a temple, St. Paul reminds us of this in his letter to the Corinthians, "Surely you know that you are God's temple, where the Spirit of God dwells. Anyone who destroys God's temple will himself be destroyed by God, because the temple of God is holy; and that temple you are" (I Cor. 3: 16-17).

The human body is made for love, not just love on a sense level. Too many people think sensual love is what life and their bodies are all about. Jesus took on our human body to dramatize that the human body is holy and that it is to be His dwelling place, as St. Paul says, "It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me."

God wishes to live in us - to be united to us. To accomplish this, however, He must be invited within. The door can be opened only with the latch on the inside. Once He is invited He enters, and transforms our lives
