St. Mary Magdalene
Like Mary Magdalene, we need to be messengers of the resurrection. We need to let go of our distant, detached image of Jesus so that we can take on the hard, demanding work of going forth and making known his presence in our midst. Our simple and quiet works of compassion need to reveal the reality of Jesus love in the lives of the poor and forgotten right where we live. We need to stop staring into empty tombs and recognize the risen Jesus in our midst. That image is ever present.
