About the Event
Offered In Person. Forever “apostle to the apostles,” Mary Magdalene is no longer portrayed by the Church as a prostitute. In 2016, after 14 centuries of the Church’s misrepresentation of this disciple of Christ, Pope Francis elevated her memorial, July 22, to a “Feast” status like that of the other apostles, reiterating her ancient title Apostola Apostolorum.
Who was this woman apostle and what might be the significance of her discipleship for your life’s journey? With lectio divina, some recent Christian and Jewish scholarship, elements of ritual, silence, and Betsey Beckman’s DVD of Magdalene at the tomb, we will prayerfully explore her life, witness, friendship with and faith-filled understanding of Jesus and his teachings.
Come meet Mary of Magdala. Get to know a friend of Jesus and a missionary of the resurrected Christ. Experience what led to her proclaiming the good news, “I have seen the Lord.”
