Of Course I'm Going with Mary Magdalene
Since this Sunday has an optional feast of Saint Mary Magdalene, of COURSE I'm going with it. What did you think?
So, in service of RevGals... if anyone's interested.... I will be happy to host a Tuesday lectionary leanings here, for the Mary Mag texts. They are:
Sometimes I wonder about those lectionary people. For example, Ruth 1. OK. A story about women finding solidarity together. Maybe I could make something relating to Mary Magdalene from that.... but Acts 13? Anyone who can find the connection there, I'll send you a batch of homemade cookies. Psalm 73.... there is a passage about the evil done by others. Perhaps that could be invoked to talk of how the bonny pope maligned our Mary by saying she had the seven deadly sins cast out of her.
John 20 feels like the only way to go. Anyone?
