In Christianity, the term state is used in various senses by theologians and spiritual writers. 
The word is used in the classification of the degrees or stages of Christian perfection, or the advancement of souls in the supernatural life of grace during their sojourn in the world. This has reference to the practice of all the virtues, both theological virtues and moral virtues, and to all their acts both external and internal. It includes two elements, namely a believer's own efforts and the grace of God assisting the believer. More on State of Grace

The anointing of Jesus is one of the relatively few events reported by each of the four Gospels. All report the anointing of Jesus with expensive perfume by a woman, who pours over Jesus the contents of an alabastron jar of "nard", a very expensive perfume. The anointing angers some of the onlookers because the perfume could have been sold for a year's wages and the money given to the poor. Matthew's Gospel states that the "disciples were indignant". Jesus is described as justifying the action of the woman by stating that the poor will always exist, and can be helped whenever desired. More on The anointing of Jesus

As such, it is a particular form of the Lamentation of Christ, a scene from the Passion of Christ found in cycles of the Life of Christ. When Christ and the Virgin are surrounded by other figures from the New Testament, the subject is strictly called a Lamentation in English, although Pietà is often used for this as well, and is the normal term in Italian. More the Pietà
