And turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman?  I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.  You gave me no kiss; but she, since the  time I came in, has not ceased to kiss my feet.  You did not annoint my head with oil, but she annointed my feet with perfume”.

“For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little”.

And He said to her, “Your sins have been forgiven”.  Luke 7:44-48
