Festa de Santa Maria Madalena, Apóstola
«Deus de reconciliação e justiça,
cujo bendito Filho restaurou
Maria Madalena à plena saúde
e a chamou para ser testemunha de sua ressurreição;
misericordioso, concede que pela tua graça
recebamos a cura para todas as nossas enfermidades
e te conheçamos no poder da vida eterna em Jesus Cristo,
que vive e reina contigo e com o Espírito Santo,
um só Deus, agora e sempre.
(Livro de Oração Comum, coleta da Festa de Maria Madalena, 22 de julho. p. 471)
22 juli: H. Maria Magdalena (eerste eeuw), Apostel der Apostelen.
Sinds begin juni 2016 wordt Maria Magdalena liturgisch gelijkwaardig aan de apostelen gevierd. Dat is bepaald door paus Franciscus, omdat zij de eerste getuige is van de verrezen Christus en de boodschap van de verrijzenis als eerste verkondigde. Daarom wordt ze eerste Verkondiger, Apostel der Apostelen genoemd.
In de Middeleeuwen ontstond de legende dat ze na Jezus’ Hemelvaart nog dertig jaar in de woestijn zou hebben geleefd, slechts bekleed door haar lange haren en gevoed door engelen. In de Gouden Legende (Legenda Aurea) uit de dertiende eeuw zou ze met haar zus Marta en haar broer Lazarus naar Marseille zijn gegaan, waar ze mensen bekeerde en zich daarna terugtrok in een grot in het Massief van Sainte Baume. In de dertiende eeuw werd dit officieel een bedevaartsoord. La Sainte-Baume behoort daarom tot de heilige bergen van de Provence.
Ook Vézelay is een bedevaartsoord voor Maria Magdalena: de basiliek aldaar staat op de werelderfgoedlijst van de UNESCO. Paus Franciscus noemde haar in zijn catechese in mei 2017 nog Apostel van de Hoop.
In de Oosterse kerken gelooft men dat ze is overleden in Efeze en dat haar relieken naar Constantinopel werden overgebracht in 886. Maria Magdalena behoort tot de zeven primaire heiligen. #apostle#maryofmagdala#holy#heilig#heilige#saint#catholicsaint#katholiek#catholic#catholics#catholicism#catholicfaith#faith#catholicchurch#christendom#christianity#constantinople#vezelay#france#frankrijk#lasaintebaume#hoop#hope#marseille#faithful#earlychurch#provence
Nestled amongst ordinary reads on a thrift store bookshelf, I discovered this gem for $1. It was one of those moments where I almost walked past the shelf, feeling sure nothing would interest me. But I heard a whisper to look closely, to read all the faded spines, just in case. The mystique of Mary Magdalene has always captivated me. She has an invisible hand on my shoulder. She is a catalyst for deep pulsations and discoveries within my solar plexus. For me, she embodies everything powerful women have had to endure through the age of Kali Yuga, from attitudes of calculated, casual indifference and belittlement to being labeled a whore. She points to the inability of twisted worlds, times and histories to accept a woman who worked for simple, spiritual mastery next to a Master, The Master. Some say she was loved most amongst all His apostles. A woman. These days I am in a study with my voice and with vulnerability...speaking my truths, professing my passions. I am learning to balance my vocal unleashings with silence. I'm also struggling to find acceptance and beauty in the mundanity of life, while craving wildly for the tantalizing zing of magic. Today, on the first day of Mary Magdalene's novena, with the breath of a new moon and a solar eclipse in tow, a touch of magic crossed over from the beyond and whispered in my ear. In that moment I realized a Saint was with me, and that I did not walk alone. ✨✨

Meaning & History
Usual English form of Maria, the Latin form of the New Testament Greek names Μαριαμ (Mariam) and Μαρια (Maria) - the spellings are interchangeable - which were from Hebrew מִרְיָם (Miryam), a name borne by the sister of Moses in the Old Testament. The meaning is not known for certain, but there are several theories including "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child". However it was most likely originally an Egyptian name, perhaps derived in part from mry "beloved" or mr "love".
This is the name of several New Testament characters, most importantly Mary the mother of Jesus. According to the gospels, Jesus was conceived in her by the Holy Spirit while she remained a virgin. This name was also borne by Mary Magdalene, a woman cured of demons by Jesus. She became one of his followers and later witnessed his crucifixion and resurrection.

Marie De Magdala.
Texte : Be Like A Sunflower inspirée par Dieu.
Marie (têtue en hébreu) était la sœur de Marthe et de Lazare. Elle était une femme qui avait été transformée par Jésus-Christ. Possédée par 7 démons, elle fut libérée par Jésus.
La Bible ne nous raconte pas vraiment son passé, mais elle était une pécheresse. Ayant croisé le chemin de Jésus, elle fut pardonnée et véritablement transformée. La Bible nous raconte qu'elle s'asseyait aux pieds de Jésus pour l'écouter. C'était une amie du Sauveur et en plus de cela, elle devint une fervente disciple du Christ. Ce fut elle qui oignis les pieds de Jesus avec du parfum et des larmes et qui essuya les pieds de Jésus avec ses cheveux. Elle fut la première femme à avoir vu Jésus ressuscité. "Comme Jésus était en chemin avec ses disciples, il entra dans un village, et une femme, nommée Marthe, le reçut dans sa maison. Elle avait une sœur, nommée Marie, qui, s’étant assise aux pieds du Seigneur, écoutait sa parole. Marthe, occupée à divers soins domestiques, survint et dit: Seigneur, cela ne te fait-il rien que ma sœur me laisse seule pour servir? Dis-lui donc de m’aider. Le Seigneur lui répondit: Marthe, Marthe, tu t’inquiètes et tu t’agites pour beaucoup de choses. Une seule chose est nécessaire. Marie a choisi la bonne part, qui ne lui sera point ôtée." (Luc 10:38-42 LSG)
I love to hear Christian's say "The Devil's a Liar!"....He/She certainly IS.
Finally the Catholic Church admits Mary (Miriam) of Magdala, was NOT a PROSTITUTE.
A LIE made up by Pope Gregory 1st to keep women OUT of the church as Priests..Religious leaders and to keep them submissive.
Mary (Miriam) of Magdala was unlike any other women in the Bible, Mary of Magdala is not identified in relation to another person; she is not anyone’s mother, wife, or sister. Instead, she is called Mary of Magdala, a Title that implies some Prominence in her hometown, the city of Galilee, at that time a center of vibrant commercial fishing on the northwest bank of the Sea of Galilee.
She left her home to follow Yeshua/Jesus and it is believed she was among several well-off, independent women who financially supported Yeshua/Jesus’ ministry.
These female followers of Yeshua—Disciples, really became central when everything started to fall apart. While others...the men/disciples, except James his brother, fled, the women were faithful, and they were led by Mary of Magdala.
She was the first that Yeshua/Jesus appeared to (resurrection) and gave instruction to...which pissed Peter off and made him jealous....Hence her story got neglected and blotted out. (Peter was a JERK!) a reason the "Church" decide not to include (cantonize...praise, glorify, or honor; ) her story...The Gospel of Mary in the Bible...but kept it in the Vatican....with the others the Gospel of David., Judas..Enoch, plus the 14 books taken out the bible in 1684. (KJV in particular, he was a jerk also)
Hard to believe in a Politically Incomplete and Prejudice book....as God's Word.
✨ I left the world with the aid of another world;
a design was erased,
by virtue of a higher design.
Henceforth I travel toward Repose,
where time rest in the Eternity of Time;
I go now into silence.✨
📜The Gospel of Mary ✨It requires a higher love to free oneself from the lower love. By the same token, it takes a higher and faster representation of the world. ...it is imperative that we find a less fragmented, more holistic vision of humankind than the ones dominant today, if we are to evolve in a positive sense for the world in which we human beings live in.✨
📖 Jean-Eves Leloup, The Gospel of Mary
Mary Magdalene (2018)
I am very happy that H. Edmundson and P. Goslett finally depicted Mary of Magdala in the way she deserves. Their script was fortunately based on Mons Ravasi's article published in L'Avvenire in 2007: he defines Magdalen as a "defamed saint", for she has always been confused as a prostitute (actually, the first that renovated Mary Magdalene's cult was Pierre de Bérulle in XVII sec.). The fact that she was confused with a prostitute is because in Luke's Gospel we read (in chapter 8) about a non-specified Mary which was released from seven demons; and in the chapter before we also read about another unknown Mary which acts in a "lustful" way (we must also notice what was considered lascivious at that time), id est she washes Jesus' feet with oil and dries them with her hair. Some biblists compared Luke's Gospel with John's one: they observed that in John, the woman which washes Jesus' feet is Mary of Bethany. Eventually, Magdalene's not a prostitute but can be considered as 13th apostle and even blessed with Sapientia.
I won't discuss the "jesus-and-mary-were-lovers" because i find it nonsense (there's a lot of christian and lay literature about this topic). Anyway you're free to believe anything you want, but i'll unavoidably think you've seen too many times Nicholas Cage's movies about Templars. And then remember you are not Robert Langdon 😘
Spread the love! ✌🏼
