"The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is of the mystical: it is the source of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand wrapped in awe – is as good as dead."

"Please come home into your own body,
Your own vessel, your own earth.
Please come home into each and every cell,
And fully into the space that surrounds you."

Colin de Coter, The Mourning Mary Magdalene, 1500-1504
Who is Mary Magdalene? 
Many have cast her as a harlot, or secret lover, or the wife of Jesus, but there is no Scriptural evidence for this. If you read all four Gospels closely, it is clear: she is a devoted disciple and a steadfast friend to Jesus. Mary stays with him when everything falls apart, when almost everyone else has deserted him— she remains even during his slow and agonizing  death on a cross. Heartbroken, she returns to the burial site to properly care for his corpse, but finds the tomb empty. In one account of the empty tomb, she sees a man there, whom she assumes to be a gardener. It’s not until she hears him say, “Mary” —that suddenly she recognizes the man as Jesus. Her surprised response illuminates their relationship: “Rabboni" (Teacher).  And so, on that first Easter morning, God gives Mary the privilege of having the first glimpse of the risen Christ, to hear him call her by name (John 10:4)— and the joy of spreading the beautiful good news! (Well, look at that. The first apostle was a woman!)
Today, as we celebrate Mary Magdalene’s feast day, we also celebrate soul-friends who are there for us in good times and in difficulties. To have such a friend is a blessing beyond measure. If you are still waiting, I pray that God puts a true friend on your path very soon.
Peace.
