The Catholic Church has never really come to terms with women. What I object to is being treated either as Madonnas or Mary Magdalenes.
I once saw my mother playing Mary Magdalene in a parish event. But she had to put the role aside in order to go and front the choir who were singing at the same occasion. She left the stage halfway through the Crucifixion.
I think they probably got it on, Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
If you have the courage to imitate Mary Magdalene in her sins, have the courage to imitate her penance!
Jesus. Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Delilah, Jezebel, Salome, Judith, Eve. Trouble, every last one. Add Minerva Highwood to the list.
Mary Magdalene beat her breast and sobbed, The beloved disciple turned to stone, But where the silent Mother stood, there No one glanced and no one would have dared.
Some would say a whore don't have no expectation of Heaven. I'd say, if she gives value for cash, she's got a better shot at God's blessing than your average banker. Jesus loved Mary Magdalene. He kicked over tables when He met a moneylender.
Mary seeks for those who approach her devoutly and with reverence, for such she loves, nourishes, and adopts as her children.
